NewFest is upon us once again and the program this year looks like quite the exciting and eclectic one.

Last year’s Fest featured two remarkable films: Eytan Fox’s powerful The Bubble, which was released shortly after it’s Newfest showing and Robert Cary’s Save Me, which has yet to receive a commercial release—which is really sad since it’s an amazing movie.

Stewart Wade’s Tru Loved

This year opens with Stewart Wade’s Tru Loved and closes with Were the World Mine, directed by Tom Gustafson.

Some new additions to this year’s programming include the John Outcalt NewFest Lounge, located at the HK Lounge (523 Ninth Avenue at 39th Street), where filmmakers and audience members can shmooze and booze. Also new to the Fest this year is the NewDraft Screenplay Competition & Reading Series.

NewFest will take place from June 5-15 and will be hosted by AMC Loews 34th Street Theater (312 W 34th St. at 8th Ave). Full program, schedule, and ticketing information is available online at
