by Alex Billington
November 6, 2023
There’s a wonderful little indie distributor based in NYC called Zeitgeist Films, founded in 1988. If you’re a die-hard cinephile, you probably already recognize the name. They’ve supported amazing filmmakers and little films that deserve to be seen in US art house cinemas. From their website, they explain Zeitgeist as: “Distributed over 200 of the finest independent films from the U.S. and around the world including the early works of Todd Haynes, Christopher Nolan, François Ozon, Laura Poitras, Atom Egoyan and the Quay Brothers. Their catalog has also included films from the world’s most outstanding filmmakers: Agnes Varda, Guy Maddin, Olivier Assayas, Jia Zhang-ke, Abbas Kiarostami, Derek Jarman, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Peter Greenaway, Philippe Garrel, Yvonne Rainer, Jan Svankmajer, Margarethe Von Trotta, Andrei Zyvagintsev and Raoul Peck.” To celebrate their 35th anniversary, Metrograph is hosting screenings of some of their finest gems. “We’re particularly looking forward to reuniting with some of our filmmakers who will join us to share their works, some newly restored in 4K DCP & others in archival 35mm prints.” Take a look below.

Films will play at the NYC theater + on their. “Special guests include Guy Maddin, Raoul Peck, Richard Press and Philip Gefter, Astra Taylor, Christine Vachon, Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss, Alexandra Dean, Bruce Goldstein, in addition to Zeitgeist Co-Founders Nancy Gerstman and Emily Russo.”
“Founded in New York City in 1988 by film lovers Nancy Gerstman & Emily Russo, Zeitgeist Films would quickly distinguish itself as a distribution company that would both take big risks in acquisitions and provide hands-on care in its release rollout. Now in its 35th year, and with five Academy Award-nominated films, including one winner, to their name, Zeitgeist is well-established as an incubator of emerging talents (Todd Haynes, Guy Maddin, Laura Poitras, and Olivier Assayas) and standard-bearer of curatorial curiosity and excellence—a tradition we salute in this anniversary series that reviews the highlights of a remarkable collection of films.” To celebrate their 35th anniversary, Zeitgeist partnered with NYC cinema Metrograph to host a series of screenings + events. Starting on November 3rd, 2023 this special series will run through December 1st. For more on the films + screenings, visit. Or stop by Zeitgeist’s .
