 New Yorker was shut down as part of a foreclosure against their parent company. Technically, that means that they and all their assets are now owned by whatever financial institution was involved. I'm not familiar with New York foreclosure law, but I'd guess that the current holder is not going to be bothered with keeping their office running. There has been a fair amount of speculation about what will happen to their library but I'd guess that until someone buys it, their films will be unavailable for a while.?

Subject: [SCREEN-L] New Yorker Films is gone

Just saw the news that New Yorker Films is out of business and wondered if
anyone out there has information about what this means with regard to their
library of films. The reason I ask is that I've got outstanding orders with
them for this semester but have been unable to reach them. I would imagine that
they would continue to honor open orders, but I can also imagine being quite
wrong about that. Any help would be appreciated.
