Roxy Cinema New York Does Cannes Film Festival
Roxy Cinema New York hit the mean streets of Cannes for the 75th edition of the famed Cannes Film Festival. Cinema Director Illyse Singer attended the festival to catch up on the year’s most anticipated films.
This year felt particularly special as the festival hadn’t really taken place in it’s full glory since 2019. The Croissette was packed with filmmakers from all around the world and the festival premiered new works from esteemed filmmakers David Cronenberg, Claire Denis, Ruben Ostland, and Jerzy Skolimowski to name a few.
However, the reel festival highlights were films from newer filmmakers including Charlotte Well’s Aftersun which was a beautiful portrait about her father starring Paul Mescal. Owen Kline’s Funny Pages was also so special and a much needed comedy in the fest. The film will be released via A24. Local New York filmmaker Lotfy Nathan’s first narrative feature Harka was also beautiful and his lead actor Adam Bessa took home the best acting prize.
We look forward to showing you our favorite films at Cannes at The Roxy Cinema soon!
