“Going Away” is part of the French film series at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. See it next Monday or Friday.
Several local film series and festivals have just begun or are about to start.
The Society for Ethical Culture is running a series of Ethics in Film screenings, with discussions afterward. On Friday, March 7, they’ll be showing Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors. Several other films will follow in the coming weeks, including documentaries on March 17. There’s a suggested donation of $5 and that covers some light snacks and beverages too (if you can’t pay anything, that’s fine too). Full Erhical Culture calendar here.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is paying homage to French films through March 16. Like many French films, they may be totally incomprehensible, but they’ll also probably be beautiful. See the schedule here.
The ReelAbilities film festival “is the largest in the country dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with different disabilities.” It started on Thursday night and many films are hosted at the JCC. See the brochure here and learn more about the films here.
Symphony Space is starting its spring Thalia Film Club on April 1. Check it out here.
The New-York Historical Society is putting on a classic film series starting on March 21 with The Verdict. The series runs on Fridays, on and off through June, and includes special guests. It’s free, and first-come first-served, with museum members receiving priority. The brochure is here and a list of historical society films is here.
