More than ever, the Film Society recognizes the importance of the international community on the work we do. We have always taken pride in welcoming filmmakers from all over the world, and we will continue to do so as long as the organization exists. To show our appreciation for the diverse array of filmmakers we work with, and to communicate to the world the importance of our mission, we invited artists who have presented their films to our audiences to share videos expressing their support of this global community. The results included filmmakers from Thailand (Apichatpong Weerasethakul), France (Agnès Varda, Olivier Assayas, Bertrand Bonello, Arnaud Desplechin), Canada (Guy Maddin), Argentina (Lisandro Alonso), the U.S. (Ava DuVernay), and more.
Our first phase of this project features a short video compiling clips from many of these entries. As we continue to expand the initiative and foster conversations around this essential global community, we will update filmlinc.org/everywhere with new filmmaker videos, information about free community events and screenings, and ways that audiences around the world can get involved to support the arts and embrace cinema.
