Sundance Award Winners Lead 2018 New Directors/New Films

The 2018 edition of New Directors/New Films, the festival organized annually by Film Society of Lincoln Center and New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), has set this year’s lineup, led by two documentaries that won awards earlier this year at Sundance.

Opener “Matangi/Maya/M.I.A.,” directed by Stephen Loveridge, is a portrait of the rapper M.I.A. that uses video diaries from the musician’s youth, while closer “Hale County This Morning, This Evening,” directed by RaMell Ross, follows five African-American families in Alabama over a period of five years.

Focused on new and emerging filmmakers, the slate of 25 features and 10 shorts includes 14 titles directed by first-time filmmakers and 13 movies directed or co-directed by women.

The 47th annual ND/NF festival runs March 28-April 8. The complete lineup of features follows.
