John Smith

Ondi Timoner is on her 4th feature, and, I agree, it is very strange to call her or any of the other two a new director.


I had thought that there was a rule that you had to be on your first or second film to get into ND/NF. Then I assumed that PUBLIC was invited anyway because they seem to always invite the Sundance winners (although no ROUGH AUNTIES this year is odd, no?), and frankly, it's possible they weren't all that conscious of Ondi's second film. But you're right that the closer you interrogate the "new"-ness of these directors, the more that classification falls apart.
