To help foster diverse voices in cinema, the Urbanite Arts & Film Festival is looking to promote young and underrepresented filmmakers. Running June 24th to the 26 at the Bedford Playhouse (633 Old Post Road, Bedford NY), the debut festival features short films, photographs, short films and spoken word from young artists around the world.
The mission of the Urbanites Arts & Film Festival is stated as…
…to foster the next generation of filmmakers that are underrepresented in the film industry. Launching its inaugural festival in June 2022, Urbanite Arts & Film Festival will highlight underrepresented voices including, but not limited to, young women, BIPOC, LatinX, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, and the neuro-diverse communities. Through exhibition of their art, we create a platform for a diverse range of young artists to express themselves creatively and launch creative careers.
The festival opens with a ticketed Red Carpet event on Friday, June 24th. Films will be screened on June 25th, with the Award Ceremony & Artist Presentation on June 26th. The Urbanite Arts & Film Festival was founded by Alex Armando Torres, a self-taught filmmaker and photographer, seeking to lift up diverse under represented voices in cinema and art.

Italy has produced the finest in art, cuisine, and unparalleled horror cinema. For decades the work of Dario Argento has terrified audiences around the world and made giallo (Itallian murder mysterys named after the yellow paper of cheap novels) famous (alongside the work of luminaries such as Mario Bava and Lucio Fulci, of course). Filled to the brim with cacophonous music, haunting camera angles, and unbridled gore Argento redefined the slasher into something dream-like. Now Film at Lincoln Center is presenting the films of Dario Argento in Beware of Dario Argento: A 20-Film Retrospective.
Films include The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Deep Red, Tenebrae, Opera, Phenomena, Suspiria, special 35mm screenings of Inferno, Mother of Tears, Trauma, The Stendhal Syndrome, The Black Cat, and Dracula 3D, along with his made-for-television feature Do You Like Hitchcock?. The lineup also will host the North American Premiere of Dark Glasses, his first film in 10 years. Argento will also be appearing at select screenings of the films, many of which also have new 4K restorations.

With a lineup of 23 films, the 2022 installment of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema festival arrives at Lincoln Center. Running March 3 to 13th, the festival features essential new films from returning favorites Christophe Honoré, Arnaud Desplechin, Mathieu Almaric, and Jacques Audiard, as well as exciting films from up-and-coming talents Emilie Carpentier, Vincent Maël Cardona, Rachel Lang, Leyla Bouzid, and more with stories of pain, passion, and romance.
In Rise, directed by Cédric Klapisch, ballerina Elise (Marion Barbeau) suffers two injuries at the same time: a devastating fall on stage that leaves her injured and unable to dance for up to two years, and her partner suddenly and humiliatingly breaking up with her for another dancer. Initially devastated, Elise slowly rebuilds her life while redirecting her efforts to contemporary dance in the troupe of real-life Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter, playing himself.
Secret Name, directed by Aurélia Georges, is set against the harsh front lines of World War I, as a former sex worker who’s now a nurse, Nélie Laborde (Lyna Khoudri, The French Dispatch), is given the unexpected chance to start a new life when one of her patients, Rose Juillet (Maud Wyler), is seemingly killed by invading German troops and Nélie assumes Rose’s identity and leaves the field of battle for the north of France, where the well-off Eléonore de Lengwil (Sabine Azéma) lives.
Set in 1980s Brittany, Magnetic Beats, directed by Vincent Maël Cardona, two brothers operating a post-punk pirate station named (in homage to Joy Division) Radio Warsaw both fall for single mother Marianne, just before one of the brothers has to begin his compulsory year of military service abroad in Berlin.
Emilie Carpentier’s debut feature The Horizon follows 18-year-old Adja (Tracy Gotoas), a girl disconnected from her community—indifferent to climate change and mocking the efforts of activists to oppose construction of a new mixed-use facility. But when she grows closer to classmate Arthur (Sylvain Le Gall)—an earnest activist and fellow intern at a nursing home—Adja begins to find a sense of purpose in political engagement, drifting away from her shallow group of friends.
Along with the lineup of films, free talks include a sit-down with filmmakers Claire Denis and official Guest of Honor at this year’s Rendez-Vous Jim Jarmusch, in an extended conversation about their decades-spanning careers; Juliette Binoche and Déborah Lukumuena, meeting to discuss their professional trajectories and creative influences; and “Working the image : a French-American look at cinematography,” a special panel organized in partnership with French In Motion and the Gotham Film & Media Institute and bringing together French and American filmmakers and cinematographers to discuss their varied inspirations, creative philosophies, and artistic practices.
