Lincoln Center in New York City at night

When you think of the movie industry, the first image that pops into your head probably has something to do with the glitz and celebrity of Hollywood. Here in NYC, though, there’s no shortage of fantastic celebrations of cinema. One of the finest festivals in North America, The New York Film Festival, is now gearing up for its 56th run, and this year already promises to be a blockbuster event. From September 28 through October 14, hundreds of films from across the world will be screened, many of them for the first time, at Lincoln Center. The Opening Night, Centerpiece, and Closing Night selections are, respectively, The Favourite, Yorgos Lanthimos’s menacing and amusing tale about the politically-charged rivalry between a duchess and her servant in early 18th-century Britain; Roma, Alfonso Cuarón’s portrayal of bourgeois family-life in 1970s Mexico City that evokes the epic grandeur of Italian Neorealist Roberto Rossellini; and At Eternity’s Gate, Julian Schnabel’s depiction of the final, gut-wrenching days of the brilliant and tortured Vincent van Gogh.
