Now in its 55th year, the New York Film Festival promises once again to live up to the reputation it has established as one of the foremost events in world cinema. Hundreds of films from around the globe, featuring both established and emerging talent, will be screened at Lincoln Center from Thursday, September 28, to Sunday, October 15. Films by three universally celebrated directors will anchor the festival: Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying will kickoff the proceedings, Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck will stand as centerpiece, and Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel will conclude the festival. Main Slate official selections include The Square by Rubin Östlund, which won the coveted Palme d’Or, BPM by Robin Campillo, which snagged the Cannes Critics’ Prize, and Luca Guadagnino’s highly anticipated Call Me by Your Name, which will make its world premier at the festival. All Main Slate films will show first at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Re-screenings (and screenings of the non-Main Slates) will take place at assorted Lincoln Center locations.
