Film at Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema, and this fall they’re hosting their 60th annual New York Film Festival from Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 16.
The New York Film Festival has been a centerpiece of NY Film culture since 1963, and it has introduced audiences to countless cinematic works from around the world.
The festival will take place at Film at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater and Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, as well as Alice Tully Hall. In honor of its 60th anniversary, festival screenings will also be offered in all five boroughs of NYC.
32 films comprise the Main Slate showings of this year’s festival which were produced across 18 countries. These films feature new titles from renowned auteurs, work from returning NYFF directors and those making their NYFF debuts, and celebrated films from festivals worldwide.
These Main Slate selections join the films that were previously announced–Noah Baumbach’s White Noise will as the festival opener, Elegance Bratton’s The Inspection as the festival closer, and Laura Poitras’s All the Beauty and the Bloodshed as the Centerpiece selection.
“If there is one takeaway from this year’s Main Slate, it is cinema’s limitless capacity for renewal,” said Dennis Lim, artistic director, New York Film Festival. “Collectively, the films in the program suggest that this renewal takes many forms: breathtaking debuts, veterans pulling off new tricks, filmmakers of all stripes seeking new and surprising forms of expression and representation. We love the range and eclecticism of this group of films and are excited to share it with audiences.”
