The title of the Lincoln Center's New Directors/New Films prestigious annual series is perhaps misleading. New to them, maybe: We've already known aboutBob Byington for years. His new film, Harmony and Me, which was shot locally and stars Bishop Allen frontman Justin Rice, was announced yesterday as part of this year's slate (an honor, we presume, which runs a very close second to winning the Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest, which Bob did back in 2005.)
The Museum of Modern Art Film Society's New Directors/New Films 2009 series runs March 25 through April 5.
