“KTFC: Scene Selections” is a series of conversations between Anthony McKelroy, Miquela Davis, and a rotating cast of friends of The Frida Cinema. Tune in as we dissect shot compositions, overanalyze subtext, and wait for our coronavirus boosters.

From September 29th-October 15th, 2023, the 61st annual New York Film Festival took place at Film at Lincoln Center and throughout the city’s five boroughs.
