By Indiewire | Indiewire August 15, 2005 at 9:35AM

New York's Film Forum recently announced their fall and winter premiere screenings, which include a wide-ranging assortment of U.S. and international films, with a strong focus on documentaries. Screenings will include Deborah Koons Garcia's "The Future of Food," Jacques Richard's "Henri Langlois: Phantom of the Cinematheque" and Jeppe Ronde's "The Swenkas," among others. "Documentaries have always been a mainstay in what the Film Forum does," said Karen Cooper, director of Film Forum to indieWIRE Friday. "I am pleased that the public is more aware of them and open to seeing them than in years past."

New York's Film Forum recently announced their fall and winter premiere screenings, which include a wide-ranging assortment of U.S. and international films, with a strong focus on documentaries. Screenings will include Deborah Koons Garcia's "The Future of Food," Jacques Richard's "Henri Langlois: Phantom of the Cinematheque" and Jeppe Ronde's "The Swenkas," among others. "Documentaries have always been a mainstay in what the Film Forum does," said Karen Cooper, director of Film Forum to indieWIRE Friday. "I am pleased that the public is more aware of them and open to seeing them than in years past."

A premiere at the Film Forum can often lead to further theatrical release for a film. While many of the films premiering this fall and winter have distributors, others like Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's "The Boys of Baraka" and Grace Lee's "The Grace Lee Project" are self-distributed.

Cooper and Film Forum's Mike Maggiore made their programming choices the same way they always have -- by "casting a wide net" internationally for the "best, [high] quality" films they could find, Cooper indicated. The films were chosen with little thought to the programming decisions of the new IFC Center in Manhattan's Greenwich Village, according to Cooper. "We are an independent, nonprofit, non-corporate entity," she said. "Our goal is to show the best work, not to make the most money."

Deborah Koons Garcia's documentary "The Future of Food" and Ira Sachs' "Forty Shades of Blue" will both premiere in September, each with two-week runs. In "The Future of Food," distributed by Cinema Libre Studio, Koons takes an in-depth look at the truth behind genetically modified food. Capital Entertainment's "Forty Shades of Blue," which won this year's Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, stars Rip Torn as Alan James, an egocentric music producer from Memphis, whose much younger girlfriend falls in love with his estranged adult son.

In October, the Film Forum will present Jacques Richard's documentary "Henri Langlois: Phantom of the Cinematheque," and Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine's doc "Ballets Russes." "Henri Langlois," distributed by Leisure Time Features, follows the life and career of the co-founder of the world's first film archive. During his lifetime, the French film preservationist Langlois saved thousands of films from destruction. Using archival footage, Richard spent seven years working on the film. Zeitgeist Films' "Ballets Russes," meanwhile, combines interviews and archival footage to create a portrait of the legendary dance company, founded in 1909, which had a profound influence on modern ballet.

In November, the Film Forum will present Jeppe Ronde's "The Swenkas," a film about a traditional stylishness contest practiced by Zulu men in South Africa called "swanking." The documentary will be presented with Virgil Widrich's short "Fast Film." Other November premieres include Eran Riklis' Middle Eastern drama "The Syrian Bride," distributed by Koch Lorber Films, and Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's documentary "The Boys of Baraka."

December premieres include Grace Lee's documentary "The Grace Lee Project" and Max Kestner's short "Max by Chance," as well as Elisabeth Marton's "My Name was Sabina Spielrein," a documentary about one of the first female psychoanalysts.
