Big screen in the Big Apple — New York Film Festival, Sept. 28 – Oct. 14
New York is a cinematic city if there ever was one. The number of films made about New York City just about equals the number of films shot on location there. Fitting then, that the city plays host to one of the longest-running festivals in North America.
For half a century, the New York Film Festival has been one of the city’s preeminent events for cinema in America. Presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, NYFF presents the latest in cinema at the Alice Tully Hall,the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center and the Walter Reade Theater.
This year’s festival closes with the premiere of the psychological thriller, Flight. The latest film by Robert Zemeckis, and his first live-action, full-length film since the critically acclaimed Cast Away, stars Denzel Washington, John Goodman and Don Cheadle. Flight will be first shown, October 14, at the Alice Tully Hall.
Tickets for the 50th New York Film Festival go on sale mid-August, and are sure to move fast. For more information visit http://www.filmlinc.com/nyff2012.
