Preoccupations: A Jamie Nares Retrospective
May 23, 2024 – June 02, 2024

Jamie Nares has produced visual art in a variety of mediums—painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance, film, and video. Initially a kind of adjunct to her art making, Nares’s moving-image work grew, as Nares put it, “to accommodate multiple genres, from document to documentary, magic realist drama to travelog,” along with the epic no wave costume feature Rome 78.

Illuminated Hours: The Cinema of Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler
May 09, 2024 – May 16, 2024

Initiated amid the flowering of artisanal cinema in 1960s New York and continuing uninterrupted until today, the moving-image careers of Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler are among the most captivating in film history. Their art, driven by the quest for a humanely lyrical cinema, transfigures ordinary surroundings into intimate glimpses of transcendence and offers audiences the experience of vision as an open form of poetry.

Bulle Ogier: A Tribute
May 01, 2024 – May 31, 2024

Marguerite Duras once said of her friend and frequent collaborator Bulle Ogier, “Bulle is not the nouvelle vague (New Wave); Bulle is absolute vagueness.” One of the few truly risk-taking actresses to emerge from the last golden age of European cinema, the 1960s and 1970s, Ogier is that most malleable and elusive of creatures—cerebral or sensuous as the role demands—bringing an uncommon intelligence and self-restraint to her work with such iconoclastic filmmakers as Duras, Luis Buñuel, Jacques Rivette, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Manoel de Oliveira, Alain Tanner, Robert Frank, her husband Barbet Schroeder, and, more recently, Olivier Assayas and Claire Denis.

New Directors / New Films 2024

April 03, 2024 – April 12, 2024

Film at Lincoln Center and The Museum of Modern Art announce the 53rd edition of New Directors/New Films (ND/NF), taking place from April 3 through April 14, 2024. For more than half a century, the festival has celebrated filmmakers who speak to the present and anticipate the future of cinema, and whose bold work pushes the envelope in unexpected, striking ways. This year’s selection will introduce 25 features and 10 shorts, including one world premiere, 14 North American premieres, five U.S. premieres, and 15 New York premieres. More

Frank Borzage and Man’s Castle
April 18, 2024 – April 24, 2024

Frank Borzage’s 1933 Man’s Castle has long been considered one of the most profound and transporting of Borzage’s spiritual love stories—a cohort that includes 7th Heaven (1927), Street Angel (1928), History Is Made at Night (1935) and The Moral Storm (1940). But for decades Man’s Castle has been available only in a heavily censored cut created in 1938, when this extremely pre-Code film was reissued to cash in on the back-to-back Oscar wins of its star, Spencer Tracy.

Carte Blanche: Joan Jonas
April 25, 2024 – April 30, 2024

Joan Jonas’s lifetime of insatiable movie watching, soaking up classics and newfound discoveries alike, has had a profound impact on the shape and themes of her own moving images, art, and performance work. Presented in conjunction with the major exhibition Joan Jonas: Good Night Good Morning, this Carte Blanche program features films selected by Jonas from MoMA’s collection, presented alongside a number of her own rarely screened video works.

Martin Beck: Last Night
June 2, 2024

Martin Beck: Last Night presents the artist’s eponymous film work for one day only, on June 2, 2024. Acquired by the Museum in 2022, Last Night (2016) revisits the records that musical host David Mancuso played on June 2, 1984, at one of the last parties at the 99 Prince Street location of the seminal New York dance party known as the Loft.
