Clarke’s ‘Connection’ starts Women’s Film Fest April 22

Tributes to Holland, Kopple included in NY femme fest

The third annual New York Women’s Film Fest kicks off April 22 at the NYU’s Cantor Film Center with a presentation of Shirley Clarke’s drama-verite classic “The Connection.”

Subsequent screenings at the Cantor will feature new films by femme filmmakers, including the Gotham premieres of Penelope Spheeris’ “The Decline of Western Civilization Part III,” Cauleen Smith’s “Drylongso,” Jule Gilfillan’s “Restless” and Maria Ripoll’s “Twice Upon a Yesterday.”

The fest will close on the 25th with Belgian filmmaker Patrice Toye’s “Rosie.”

Hats off to Holland

The fest will also feature a tribute to Agnieszka Holland and groundbreaking documentary maker Barbara Kopple.

In addition to the main program and the tributes, NYWFF will have two main sidebars — one on experimental films and one on music videos — which will be held April 23 and will feature videos directed by Sophie Muller, Diane Martel and Lauryn Hill, among others.

For information or to purchase tickets for the event, call (212) 465-3435 or visit the fest Web site at http://www.nywfilmfest.com.
