The festival runs from June 20 – July 1; in the lineup, 20 New York premieres and one North American premiere, includes films culled from Cannes, Sundance, Toronto, Berlin, Rotterdam, Slamdance, and SXSW.
We've covered a few of them, like Beasts Of The Southern Wild (my review HERE), Detropia (my review HERE), Tchoupitoulas (Vanessa's review HERE), and Welcome To Pine Hill (review coming).
So if you're in NYC during the week+ of the festival, you'll get a chance to see these films, if you haven't yet.
