Starting tonight and over the next two weeks, the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) will once again be teaming up to present their annual film series, New Directors/New Films ’09, a showcase of new filmmakers and independent films by those whose films debuted at past ND/NF series. While there are a lot of films shown that have premiered at Sundance or other festivals, there’s always an eclectic mix of American and foreign films and documentaries that many might not have a chance to see otherwise, as well as films that will go onto be recognized with awards later in the year.
