Founded in 1963, the New York Film Festival is one of the country’s most important screening events in the country. It’s non-competitive, so the real honor for filmmakers is just to have their work shown during the two week festival run by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. New Yorkers and visitors will have a chance to see the best of new cinema, restored classics and an Avant-Garde Showcase, and can attend discussions and parties as well. This year’s line-up will feature world premieres, including new films featuring the great Annette Bening.
