Andrea Arnold Named Filmmaker in Residence at 2013 New York Film Festival

Writer-director of 'Fish Tank' will focus on developing and refining new work

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has tapped Andrea Arnold, whose features include 2009 Michael Fassbender outing “Fish Tank” and the 2011 adaptation of “Wuthering Heights,” as the 2013 Filmmaker in Residence for this year’s edition of the New York Film Festival.

Arnold is the first to score the residency, a new program launched this year by FSLC and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Program aims to give a filmmaker in the early stages of the creative process a chance to develop new work while also participating in master classes, mentorships and other career development opportunities.

Brit writer-helmer Arnold won the 2005 live-action short film Oscar for her pic “Wasp,” while both her 2006 feature “Red Road” and “Fish Tank” won Jury Prizes at Cannes. “Wuthering Heights” was released in the U.S. by Oscilloscope Pictures in 2012.

Arnold’s stay in Gotham for the residency is timed to coincide with the 2013 NYFF, running Sept. 27-Oct. 13, but will also extend longer than the fest itself. The new residency initiative also encompasses an advisory board that includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tamara Jenkins, Danny Huston, Bennett Miller, Matthew Modine, Ira Sachs, Paul Schrader and Marisa Tomei, among others.

The 51st New York Film Festival will open Sept. 27 with Paul Greengrass’ Tom Hanks starrer “Captain Phillips” and screen 36 films in its main slate in addition to a variety of sidebar programming.
