Films on the Green Returns June 2nd

(released 5/23/2023)

Films on the Green returns to the city parks of Manhattan and Brooklyn June 2 - September 8, 2023. Twelve feature films curated around the theme of "Dance in Film" will include classics and new releases. These films will showcase and celebrate the beauty, rhythm, and emotion of dance on the big screen. French Cancan, Flamenco and Hip Hop are styles featured in the programmed films.

Summer 2023 marks the 15th anniversary of Films on the Green. What started in 2008 as a small series in local community gardens has blossomed into a beloved summer tradition, hotly anticipated by film buffs and casual viewers alike. This summer, the festival also returns to Washington, DC (May - July), Chicago (June 20 – July 5), and Boston (early September) each produced by Villa Albertine on the theme of "Dance in Film."

"Films on the Green combines movies and parks, both summer favorites for New Yorkers," said NYC Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue. "Thank you Villa Albertine for putting on this free festival for the fifteenth year, and I encourage New Yorkers to get outside and enjoy these dance-themed films this summer."

All films are free and open to the public. Movies will screen with English subtitles. Click through for the full summer schedule:
