    The Morgan Library & Museum and the Mid-Manhattan Branch of The New York Public Library, in collaboration with MUSE Film and Television, will host screenings of award-winning productions from the 26th annual Montreal International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) during the month of February 2009.

    The FIFA is the only North American festival devoted exclusively to the arts. 2008 marked the 26th edition of the FIFA, which presented 300 productions from 30 countries. An international jury awarded prizes to an outstanding group of films/videos, which New Yorkers will have the opportunity to view during the “Art on Screen” presentations, enlivening the grey days of February.

    On Sundays at 2:00pm, the Mid-Manhattan Library will show films on music, dance, and photography. Looking for an Icon analyzes how news photos become iconic images (Feb. 1). In Here After, the Belgian dance troupe Ultima Vez performs a powerful drama of tyranny and infanticide (Feb. . The lively Chick’a’bone Checkout tracks the creative collaboration between composer and trombonist (Feb. 15). The series wraps up with Jimmy Rosenberg—The Father, the Son & the Talent, a moving profile of the Gypsy guitar prodigy whose talent is compromised by his troubled life (Feb. 22). For more information, please visit: www.nypl.org/calendar.

    The Morgan will host a weekend festival of films on the visual arts. Selections include two films by Quebec filmmakers on Friday evening, February 20: In My Father’s Studio, Jennifer Alleyn explores the life and work of painter Edmund Alleyn (1931-2004); and Jean Bergeron documents the intersection of science and art in the work of Dutch artist Maurits C. Escher (1898-1972). Both filmmakers will be present to introduce their work and discuss with audiences.

    THE ART ON SCREEN: FIFA IN NEW YORK SERIES IS MADE POSSIBLE WITH A GRANT FROM THE PIERRE AND TANA MATISSE FOUNDATION, AND THE SUPPORT OF THE QUEBEC DELEGATION GENERAL IN NEW YORK AND THE CANADIAN CONSULATE GENERAL.
