FILM FEST KNOX Award Winner Showcased in NY and Berlin

February 12, 2024

An Evening Song (for three voices) by Graham Swon, winner of Best Director in the 2023 FILM FEST KNOX Regional Competition, will screen at two important showcases of contemporary cinema: First Look at the Museum of the Moving Image and Critics’ Week in Berlin.

The First Look Festival focuses on emerging talents and international voices, with the fest premiering 46 works, including 20 features that represent 21 countries.

“Now in its 13th year, First Look has carved out a unique, and we think essential, place in New York’s film and cultural landscape,” Eric Hynes, MoMI Curator of Film, said. “For five days in mid-March, MoMI is transformed into a space of active discovery, experimentation, dialogue, and possibility. We’re presenting a slate of films that we love and admire, and we can’t wait to show them to our audiences. We’re also welcoming artists from around the world to gather in Astoria, Queens, to meet and inspire one another with works completed and unfinished. It’s not a coincidence that First Look alums often re-congregate and return to us — they’re a permanent part of our community, and we’re committed to growing a platform that champions adventurous works of cinema.”
