Soccer On the Big Screen: New York Film Festivals + Screenings For the Soccer Obsessed

Kicking and Screening

In the build up to the World Cup, New York-based soccer cinephiles will have the opportunity to spend their afternoons and or evenings indulging in soccer-inspired films at the following festivals:

The array of films at both events is impressive, ranging from works focusing on the actions of participants (individual players, officials and teams) to films showing the power of the game to bring about social change and films that simply capture the imagination and entertain.  For those lucky enough to be close enough to partake, enjoy!
