The 56th Annual New York Film Festival: A Motion Picture Gala
One of the most venerable celebrations of the silver screen anywhere in the country, The New York Film Festival has delighted cinephiles since 1963 with its impressive selection of emerging and established talent from across the globe. The festival is built around its Main Slate of a few dozen feature films, in addition to which you can also enjoy hundreds of other screenings, including documentaries, shorts, and various experimental genres. The three anchors of this year’s festival, which takes place from September 28 through October 14, are Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favourite, a period piece which explores class and political clash during the War of Spanish Succession; Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma, which rekindles that famed Italian Neorealist magic in a depiction of a 1970s middle-class family in Mexico City; and Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate, in which Willem Defoe gives a sublime performance as the tortured Vincent van Gogh living out his final days. Join the thousands of film-lovers who will flock to Lincoln Center to enjoy these and many other screenings across more than two weeks of cinematic splendor.
