Ahead of the unveiling of its new landmark space, the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, on June 10, the Film Society of Lincoln Center has made two reveals.
First up, as part of their previously announced free-to-the-public weekend lineup of events to celebrate the opening, there will be a special filmmaker panel. Titled ‘New Faces of New York Indpendent Film,’ the panel will be moderated by producer Ted Hope (click here to check out his indieWIRE blog, Hope for Film) and will feature participants including Mike Cahill (director of “Another Earth), Lena Dunham, Sean Durkin (director/writer of “Martha Marcy May Marlene”) and Ben and John Sardie (directors of “Daddy Long Legs”). The event takes place on Saturday, June 11.
Secondly, the Center revealed the new space will house Panasonic’s TH-152UX1, reportedly the world’s largest 152-inch 4K x 2K definition Full HD 3D professional plasma display. “It will provide an exciting opportunity for FSLC to deliver interstitial entertainment and programming for the film fans coming to the Film Center,” said associate director of programming Scott Foundas.
