Returning every fall to celebrate a new slate of essential cinematic offerings from around the globe, the New York Film Festival has been an enduring part of New York’s rich cultural and historical landscape for nearly six decades. The 58th edition of Film at Lincoln Center’s illustrious festival represents just that—an enduring symbol of New York’s strength and resilience through the collective spirit of cinema. Marking a historic first for NYFF, this year’s reimagined festival will feature drive-in and virtual screenings, providing movie lovers near and far the opportunity to enjoy the festival in the format they find most comfortable.
The festival’s offerings have been streamlined into five sections, with the Main Slate remaining the heart and historic core of the program. Currents, Spotlight, Revivals, and Talks will be announced in the coming weeks. NYFF58 will run September 17 – October 11, beginning one week earlier than usual in order to expand access to the festival via drive-in screenings. Opening Night is September 17, the Centerpiece screening is September 26, and the Closing Night selection will screen October 10.
The reimagined festival will feature virtual and drive-in screenings. All ticket sales will be streamlined via online purchase; physical box office sales are not available at any venues at this time. Outdoor screenings will have extensive health and social distancing procedures in place. Additional details to follow.
