The New York Film Festival of the Film Society of Lincoln Center celebrates its 50th year with a host of films from across the world, some of which will include appearances by directors and stars. The roster is diverse, including premieres, studio movies, indies, foreign films, documentaries, classics, and shorts.
Nicole Kidman will be honored with a special gala, and her latest film, The Paperboy, directed by Lee Daniels, will be screened. Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron are her costars.
Ang Lee‘s much-anticipated Life of Pi will open the festival, and Robert Zemeckis‘ Flight, starring Denzel Washington, will close it.
I’ll be writing about some of the films as I attend press screenings. Watch for my upcoming coverage of this exciting festival. Visit the Film Society’s web site for a full schedule and tickets.
I’m sure some of these will come to our downtown State Theatre – @StateTC – but I hate the wait!
