Bill Cunningham New York broke all house records at Film Forum and we’re still playing in 3 theatres in Manhattan. We’ve already opened in 30 cities and it’s doing well everywhere. Our rollout will be in over 200 cities. BCNY appeals to people who love fashion because it’s so much fun to watch and it’s crossing over because audiences are moved and inspired by Bill’s simplicity and humility and passion for his work. He’s a beacon in these cynical times!

Bill Cunningham New York broke all house records at Film Forum and we’re still playing in 3 theatres in Manhattan. We’ve already opened in 30 cities and it’s doing well everywhere.

He’s a beacon in these cynical times!

So says Nancy Gerstman, Co-President of Zeitgeist who along with partner Emily Russo have run the New York based company for more than 20 years. They have kept true to their 1988 vision which differentiates them by focusing on the more discriminating and adventurous filmgoer, whose needs were not being met by traditional “arthouse” fare. Zeitgeist films are strongly auteur-driven and have a distinct visual style and unique content.
