At the New York Film Festival, Film Comment presents a series of talks that include a reliably energizing and insightful conversation with a group of directors. Our 2018 Filmmakers Chat—posted for the first time now—featured a unique and invigorating mix of talents in a discussion about the art and craft (and anxieties and rewards) of making movies. I was honored and delighted to be joined at the Film Society of Lincoln Center by Louis Garrel, director of A Faithful Man; Jodie Mack, director of The Grand Bizarre; Alex Ross Perry, director of Her Smell; and Albert Serra, director of Roi Soleil. Look out for our next Film Comment Talk at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, on Tuesday, December 11, when we reveal the results of our Best Films of 2018 poll and discuss the results with our panel of all-star contributors.
