Dear Friend of Film Forum:
In 2012, we celebrate Bruce Goldstein's 25th anniversary as Director of Repertory Programming. Thanks to Bruce's work, Film Forum remains one of the few cinemas in the U.S. to present repertory programming, festivals rich in rarities, and double features on a regular basis. In 2011 alone, we presented festivals devoted to director Fritz Lang, composer Bernard Herrmann, comedian W.C. Fields, actors Al Pacino and Robert Ryan, and the silent comedy masterpieces of Buster Keaton, along with Essential Pre-Code, NYPD, 5 Japanese Divas, and The Silent Roar (MGM Silents). Plus stunning new 35mm prints and restorations of Fellini's LA DOLCE VITA, Friedkin's THE FRENCH CONNECTION, Fuller's HOUSE OF BAMBOO, Bresson's DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST, Visconti's THE LEOPARD, Scorsese's TAXI DRIVER, Powell & Pressburger's THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP, and many others.
In 2010, we celebrated Film Forum's 40th anniversary as an alternative movie house premiering American and foreign independent features. During these decades, we have introduced the work of such acclaimed directors as Werner Herzog, Kelly Reichardt, Frederick Wiseman, D.A. Pennebaker & Chris Hegedus, Terence Davies, Lucrecia Martel, Andrzej Wajda, Gus Van Sant, Mira Nair, Christopher Nolan, Margarethe von Trotta, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Bruce Conner, Alexander Sokurov, Claire Denis, Peter Greenaway, Michael Haneke, Carlos Reygadas, Cristi Puiu, Jan Svankmajer, Spike Lee, Guy Maddin, Hirokazu Kore-eda, Johnnie To, and Asghar Farhadi.
Here's what we don't put on our screens:
In this difficult economy, we need your help to stay true to our mission.
Many thanks and best wishes for the New Year,
Forum is a mission-driven nonprofit cinema that operates on
a combination of earned income and contributed income.
