The Chinese noir film the WILD GOOSE LAKE (above) is one of the films New York's Film Forum will be featuring in its Virtual Cinema partnership.

Film Forum, New York City’s leading non-profit movie house for independent premieres and classic releases, is partnering with theatrical distributors to present a Virtual Cinema while the theater is temporarily closed.

In most cases, this platform is the only way to see these titles. All rental fees support Film Forum.

Starting this Friday, April 17, two entertaining documentaries will become available – D.W. Young's THE BOOKSELLERS (Greenwich Entertainment), which had just opened theatrically in NYC prior to the lockdown order, and Rob Garver's WHAT SHE SAID: THE ART OF PAULINE KAEL (Juno Films).

Premieres and re-releases currently available in Film Forum’s virtual cinema:

  • Kantemir Balagov’s lauded Russian post-WWII drama BEANPOLE (Kino Lorber)
  • Yaron Zilberman’s Israeli drama INCITEMENT (Greenwich Entertainment), based on the actual events surrounding the assassination of Yizthak Rabin
  • A 4K restoration of István Szabó's 1981 Oscar-winner MEPHISTO (Kino Lorber) Jan Komasa’s 2020 Best International Film Oscar nominee CORPUS CHRISTI (Film Movement)
  • Ken Loach’s timely drama SORRY WE MISSED YOU (Zeitgeist Films in association with Kino Lorber)
  • Diao Yinan’s acclaimed Chinese noir THE WILD GOOSE LAKE (Film Movement)
  • Corneliu Porumboiu’s Romanian crime caper THE WHISTLERS (Magnolia Pictures)
  • Luchino Visconti’s lush final film, L’INNOCENTE (Kino Lorber)

From Karen Cooper, Film Forum’s long-time director and programmer: “The inherent value of the communal theatrical moviegoing experience will always be at the core of Film Forum’s mission. But in these unprecedented times, we remain committed to entertaining, challenging, and engaging our audience in whatever way we are able – especially while people are responsibly staying home. We look forward to being back alone together at the movies soon.”
