Andrea Arnold has been named the 2013 Filmmaker in Residence during the New York Film Festival.

The initiative is in partnership with luxury brand Jaeger-LeCoultre to further the goals of filmmakers at an earlier stage in the creative process.

Arnold will focus on developing or refining new work, participate in master classes, mentorships or cultural exchange and enrichment film programmes with the Film Society Of Lincoln members, the film community and the public.

Her credits include Red Road and Fish Tank.
