Celebrating its fifth year, the Art of the Real festival offers a survey of the most vital and innovative voices in nonfiction and hybrid filmmaking. The 2018 lineup features a host of brilliant new works by internationally acclaimed filmmakers such as Corneliu Porumboiu, Sergei Loznitsa, Irene Lusztig, Karim Aïnouz, Kazuhiro Soda, and Jumana Manna, along with a vibrant slate of impressive, award-winning debuts from around the world. This year also includes a series of “Artist Spotlights,” four presentations and career-spanning conversations with visual artists whose work resonates with nonfiction filmmaking: Hiwa K, Amar Kanwar, Steffani Jemison, and Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme. Art of the Real is documentary redefined.
Organized by Dennis Lim and Rachael Rakes.
Presented with support from MUBI.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
