First Look 2023

Mar 15 — Mar 19, 2023

First Look, MoMI’s annual showcase for new international cinema, introduces New York audiences to more than two dozen formally inventive works that seek to redefine the art form, often with the filmmakers in person; and through its Working on It program, engages filmmakers, critics, and students in conversations about the creative process in workshops and work-in-progress screenings. This year, First Look will launch the Reverse Shot Emerging Critics Workshop, with a call for applications open to early-career writers in the Greater New York area.

The lineup for the 12th annual First Look will be announced in early February 2023. All Festival Passes, good for all screenings including Opening Night and all Working on It sessions, are on sale now through February 13, 2023 at the early bird rate of $100 (regularly $120) with code EARLYBIRD.

First Look is presented with support from The Jonathan B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism at the Missouri School of Journalism, The Harriman Institute at Columbia University, Polish Cultural Institute New York, Villa Albertine, Kickstarter, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
