The 2001 New York Film Festival was dominated as thoroughly by new French cinema as the 2000 edition was by Asian movies. The 39th annual festival, held September 18 to October 14 at Lincoln Center, and sponsored by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, opened with Va Savoir, the latest work of 73-year-old French New Wave director Jacques Rivette; it closed with In Praise of Love, which is technically a Swiss production, but is directed by New Wave master Jean-Luc Godard (now 71).
