The Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center are calling for submissions to the 42nd edition of New Directors/New Films. The festival, which runs March 20-31, welcomes two new programmers: Robert Koehler (FSLC’s Director of Year-Round Programming) and Joshua Siegel (Associate Curator at MoMA). They will replace Richard Peña, who will step down from his position at the end of the year, and Lawrence Kardish, who retired in October. The ND/NF selection committee is comprised of Koehler, Marian Masone, and Gavin Smith of FSLC and Siegel, Jytte Jensen and Rajendra Roy of MoMA.

FSLC exec director Rose Kuo states: “I have long admired and respected the vision and film knowledge of both Bob and Josh so it's with great pleasure to welcome them to the New Directors selection committee.”

To submit to ND/NF for free go here. The deadline is January 9. Guidelines are below:

- Entries must be New York premieres and must have been completed in 2012 or 2013. Films shown in other festivals or public screenings in New York are not eligible for consideration. (The Committee reserves the right to waive this rule in the case of small non-commercial, non-publicized showings.)
 
- Work can be submitted on DVD, HDCam, Digibeta or streaming video. DVD submissions will not be returned.
 
- Works of all lengths will be considered. There are no separate categories for feature length and short films.
 
- Films in any language other than English must be subtitled in English.
