The New York Film Festival

The New York Film Festival should have you scrambling to see and be seen, whether you’re an armchair critic, aspiring Spielberg, or a sock-knocking starlet. From the main slate that features a selection of over 25 films from around the globe, including some of the year’s most spoken about hits from other festivals. So if you missed Cannes this year, fear not, Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or winner The Square is coming to you!

Everyone’s a critic. Everyone love’s movies. Therefore, critics love movies. Well that logic is obviously flawed, but one thing is for sure, you need to get yourself to the Big Apple for the New York Film Festival. Founded in 1962, this year’s showreel aims to demonstrate the evolution of international film art and highlight contemporary trends in content, form as well as style.

A Gathering of Legends

We live in an age of binge-watching big-budget series over a weekend, while curled up on the couch. But when it comes to truly appreciating the exquisite art of some of the world’s greatest directors – think Woody Allan and Richard Linklater – there’s no substitute for cinema seats, supreme surround sound. The two aforementioned legends of the art form are but a sample of what can be expected at this year’s 55th offering of one of the world’s most integral cinematic feasts. There is also a Robert Mitchum retrospective, that will look at this alluring actor’s career that spanned over 5 decades. Basically, as long as the New York Film Festival has been around.

In Short:

  • Soirée through special events, panel discussions and filmmaker talks
  • Celebrate the essence of cinema with some of the world’s greatest exponents of the art
  • Show off your glamorous self!
