The New York Film Festival is an annual festival produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center which aims to celebrate the development of international film art and contemporary trends in content, form and style. The Festival is a showcase of inspiring and provocative cinema by emerging talents and first-rank international artists whose films are often recognized as contemporary classics. A special section of the Festival is the Views from the Avant-Garde which premieres non-narrative, experimental film and video.
All filmmakers, regardless of experience, are invited to submit work to the New York Film Festival. The Festival is highly competitive with an average of 28 feature films and 12 short films selected each year. There are no categories and no prizes awarded. Selections are made by a five person committee.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center presents a 363-day season that includes premieres of new films from an international roster of established and emerging directors; major retrospectives; in-depth symposia and high profile events. The organization has been a pioneer among film institutions and one of the film world’s most respected and influential arbiters of cinematic trends and discoveries. François Truffaut, R.W. Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson– over the last four decades there is scarcely a major director who has not been introduced to American audiences by the Film Society.
The Film Society’s prestige and influence within the film community is reflected in the many high profile special events that bring noted film artists to Alice Tully Hall or the Walter Reade Theater for one-on-one conversations or mini-tributes. Among these have been recent personal appearances by Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Sir Ben Kingsley, Jeff Bridges, Christopher Walken, Mike Nichols and more.
