N.Y. Will Get First Glimpses of ‘Snowpiercer,’ ‘They Came Together’ at BAMcinemaFest

Bong Joon Ho’s “Snowpiercer,” the starry sci-fi title that will get its long-delayed U.S. release June 27, and Amy Poehler-Paul Rudd comedy “They Came Together” are among the New York premieres lined up for BAMcinemaFest, the sixth annual film festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

The 12-day fest will close with a 25th anniversary screening of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing,” co-presented by AMPAS in an event that will reunite Lee with cast members including Danny Aiello and Giancarlo Esposito.

Centerpiece title “Snowpiercer,” spotlight film “They Came Together” and the closing-night film join a BAMcinemaFest lineup that, as previously announced, will kick off with Richard Linklater’s buzzy Sundance title “Boyhood.”

Also on the full lineup is the world premiere of “For the Plasma,” Bingham Bryant and Kyle Molzan’s genre-bending tale of two friends trying to predict financial market trends based on pastoral CCTV footage, plus the U.S. premiere of Lev Kalman and Whitney Horn’s grad-student vacation tale “L Is for Leisure.”

The rest of the slate is comprised of Gotham bows for titles including SXSW award winner “10,000KM,” “Appropriate Behavior,” “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” and “Memphis.”

The 2014 BAMcinemaFest runs June 18-29.
