More Selections from NewFest 2015
Opening Night: Eisenstein in Guanajuato
Ticket includes entrance to Opening Night Party.
Acclaimed director Peter Greenaway (THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER) serves up perhaps the finest film of his esteemed career with this bold, sexually explicit celebration of pioneering Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein’s gay coming-of-age during a trip to Mexico in the 1930s. Greenaway’s lavishly produced and deliciously taboo film kicks dust in the face of the rickety biopic genre. New York Premiere.

Closing Night: Girls Lost
Ticket includes entrance to Closing Night Party.
We’re thrilled to present this wildly original teen adventure tale from Sweden, fresh off its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. BFFs Kim, Momo and Bella are bullied by boys at school while their teachers do nothing. So when the trio finds a magical plant whose nectar temporarily turns them into boys (with working genitalia), it offers them the thrilling chance to experience freedoms they’ve never known. New York Premiere.
