New York Film Festival Picks Up Steam, Loses Outside Voices

Checking out the schedule for the 51st New York Film Festival, I'm struck by how many movies there are still to see, even if many have played other festivals, from Cannes last May to fall fests Telluride, Venice and Toronto. Under the Film Society of Lincoln Center executive director Rose Kuo, over the past three years the NYFF has not only undergone management changes, but has picked up steam and momentum as a major festival.

For the poster Dean used a black and white photograph from a series of 326 photos Dean produced in the Czech Republic between 1991 and 2002.  Dean has participated in many group exhibitions including Venice Biennale (2003, 2005 and 2013), Sydney Biennale (2005 and 2014) and Sao Paulo Biennale (2006 and 2010), and recently showed work in dOCUMENTA (13) (2012). Dean was awarded the Hugo Boss Prize (2006) and the Kurt Schwitters Prize (2009).
