U.S. preems fill pic series

Film Comment Selects to screen 14 pix

The sixth annual film series chosen by the editorial staff of Film Comment is set to unspool at the Lincoln Center beginning Feb. 15, with more U.S. premieres than ever before.

This year Film Comment Selects will screen 14 pics never seen before in the U.S. and four New York preems — a move senior editor Chris Chang attributed to a more expansive search policy. Featured films include a debut from Sri Lankan helmer Vimukthi Jayasundara, and also a first-time feature from Kyrgyzstan.

Series will include some mainstream Americana as well, with an appearance from photographer William Eggleston and a conversation between Elaine May and Mike Nichols.

Chang also indicated that the series could well expand beyond the Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater, with plans to establish a national or even international Film Comment Selects tour.
