This season’s packed festival lineup doesn’t look quite the same as it did even two years ago, but 2021 promises to feel more like old times than 2020 ever did.

While the majority of 2020’s film festivals opted for virtual or hybrid affairs — and some were even cancelled, as was the case for both Cannes and Telluride — this year sees the world creeping, quite cautiously, back into seeming normalcy. Cannes went off without a hitch (albeit in an un-traditional July slot), while both Venice and Telluride are gearing up for in-person editions in the coming days. The Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival are both going ahead with hybrid events that will likely offer less virtual options for audiences than they did last year, with NYFF even announcing that it would not screen any films on a virtual platform, though some other events will be available that way.

So, no, this year’s packed fall festival season doesn’t look quite the same as it did even two years ago, but 2021 promises to feel more like old times than 2020 ever did.
Itu termasuk pilihan film-film baru yang akan diluncurkan selama beberapa minggu ke depan, termasuk karya-karya dari favorit festival abadi seperti Pedro Almodóvar, Paul Schrader, Paolo Sorrentino, Joanna Hogg, Joachim Trier, dan Sean Baker; peristiwa besar dari orang-orang seperti Denis Villeneuve, Edgar Wright, dan Julia Ducournau; dan penantang penghargaan yang baru dicetak dari Jonas Poher Rasmussen, Ridley Scott, dan Pablo Larrain.

“Bergman Island” (TIFF, NYFF)
A triple-layered meta-romance about a filmmaker who flies to Sweden with her partner and pitches him a screenplay about her first love — Mia Hansen-Løve’s “Bergman Island” is such a rare and remarkable movie for the very same reason that you wouldn’t expect it to exist in the first place. Set on the remote skerry in the Baltic Sea that Bergman adopted as his home and began to terraform with his artistic persona after making “Through a Glass Darkly” there in 1961, Hansen-Løve’s zephyr-calm story of loss, love, and artistic reclamation draws such an extreme contrast to the scorched Earth films that have become synonymous with Fårö that even its nighttime scenes reveal the shadows that fiction has the power to cast across reality.
In other words, Hansen-Løve’s film isn’t really an homage to Bergman at all — at least not one that worships at his altar with the kind of orthodox piety required for Paul Schrader to refract “Winter Light” into “First Reformed.” While the iconic Swedish artist is amusingly inescapable in “Bergman Island” (his films are name-checked in almost every scene, many of which take place on the exact spots where they were shot or in the house where he wrote them), this supple puzzle-box is more interested in him as a means to an end. The Cannes premiere will screen at both TIFF and NYFF before a theatrical release in October.

One of the potential breakouts of this year’s TIFF documentary lineup, “Beba” marks the debut of director Rebeca Huntt, and puts her on camera at the same time. A self-portrait of a Latina woman of mixed heritage, “Beba” finds Huntt musing on her family’s Dominican and Venezuelan backgrounds as well as how they inform her identity as she navigates an American society unsure exactly where to place her.
As a Bard College student, she’s forced into an environment that judges her based on her skin color even when it claims otherwise. With a bevy of top-notch documentary producers (including Brazilian Oscar nominee Petra Costa), “Beba” promises to reignite conversations about race and class among American-born Latinx individuals eager to see their struggles represented onscreen.
