Each year the Film Society of Lincoln Center presents the New York Film Festival. This year, for the third time since 2013, the society partnered with Jaeger-LeCoultre to appoint the 2015 filmmaker in residence in July. The recipient was writer-director Athina Rachel Tsangari. Athina’s most recent release is the comedy Chevalier. She has been using her residency to work on her newest project called White Knuckles. It’s being called a “screwball action thriller about two criminal sisters.”


With cinematic promise and success, it’s no question the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Jaeger-LeCoultre wanted to celebrate Athina. Last Thursday at the Caf Clover in New York City, they did just that. It was an intimate celebration of the filmmaker in residence’s during the 53rd annual New York Film Festival. The guest list included the likes of Philippe Bonay, Lesli Klainberg, Athina Rachel Tsangari, Laurent Vinay, Charles Finch, Jamie Johnson, Lauren Tabach, and Paul Haggis.
