The Global Film Initiative Announces Global Lens 2011 Film Lineup
December 8, 2010 The Global Film Initiative announced nine award-winning narrative feature films from Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, China, Georgia, India, Iran, Kyrgyzstan and Uruguay that will headline the Global Lens 2011 film series.
"This year's lineup really does break new ground for the series," says Susan Weeks Coulter, Board Chair of the Global Film Initiative. "The films are unusual and intriguing, wildly creative, experimental at times and quite different from previous editions of Global Lens."

Global Lens, now in its eighth year, will premiere January 13-28, 2011, at the Museum of Modern Art before embarking on a yearlong tour of over thirty-five cities across the United States and Canada. The series will be simultaneously released throughout the year on Virgin America airlines, and selections will also be presented in Washington, D.C. in January as part of a newly established partnership with the Smithsonian Institution.
