The New York Film Festival, now in its 53rd year, runs September 25th to October 11th, 2015.   This year marks the second year of the Festival’s unique celebration of experimental media: Projections.

The New York Film Festival’s Projections section presents an international selection of artists’ film and video work that expands upon our notions of what the moving image can do and be. Drawing on a broad range of innovative modes and techniques, including experimental narratives, avant-garde poetics, crossovers into documentary and ethnographic realms, and contemporary art practices, Projections brings together a diverse offering of short, medium, and feature-length work by some of today’s most vital and groundbreaking filmmakers and artists. Projections is curated by Dennis Lim (Director of Programming, Film Society of Lincoln Center), Aily Nash (independent curator), and Gavin Smith (Senior Programmer, Film Society of Lincoln Center & Editor-in-Chief, Film Comment)

VDB is thrilled that the 2015 Projections program will highlight a number of VDB titles and artists, including:
