The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced today that the submission process for the 50th New York Film Festival is now open. Founded in 1963, as auteur theory and European cinematic modernism were crashing on to the shores of American film culture, the New York Film Festival stands as the second-oldest film festival in North America, and one of the oldest in the world.
The festival hosts an average of 28 feature films in the main slate and 16 short films selected each year. Rounding out the festival each year are Documentaries, Special Event screenings and Views from the Avant-Garde which premieres non-narrative, experimental film and video. Selections are made by a five-person selection committee chaired by Program Director Richard Peña and this year includes: Melissa Anderson, Contributor/The Village Voice; Scott Foundas, Associate Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Todd McCarthy, Critic for The Hollywood Reporter and Amy Taubin, Contributor/Film Comment, Sight & Sound, Artforum.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center has been a pioneer for discovering and introducing American audiences to critically-acclaimed works by François Truffaut, R.W. Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, and more during New York’s brightest and boldest annual cinematic showcase. For its 50th New York Film Festival, filmmakers are invited to submit their shorts, feature films, and Views from the Avant-Garde films for early submission until May 25, regular submission by June 22 and late submission by July 15.
