Joachim Trier‘s Oslo, August 31st, which also screens Jan. 20 at the Sundance Film Festival and won best picture and best cinematography at November’s Stockholm International Film Festival, is one of the films chosen for the 2012 New Directors/New Films Festival in New York from March 21-April 1, the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art announced.
The 41st year of the reputation-making fest also includes Julia Murat‘s Found Memories, which won best film in the New Horizons category at the Abu Dhabi International Film Festival, Pablo Giorgelli‘s Cannes fest Camera d’Or winner Las Acacias, Anca Damian‘s Crulic: The Path to Beyond, and Alejandro Landes’s Porfirio. Debuts by first-time directors include Karl Markovic‘s Breathing and Angelina Nikonova’s Twilight Portrait.
“Even with the lion’s share of films still to be selected, the year’s first crop for ND/NF introduces a group of filmmakers both exceptionally accomplished in their storytelling as well as adventurous in their approach to filmmaking,” said Film Society of Lincoln Center program director Richard Pena.
