48th New York Film Festival Lineup Announced

The 48th New York Film Festival Lineup had been announced on Monday as Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter,” a picture starring Matt Damon about three people whose lives are uniquely affected by death that was chosen to serve as the closing night film. This film festival will be kicked off on 24th September, 2010 with David Fincher’s The Social Network and ends on 10th October, 2010 at Walter Reade Theater and Alice Tully Hall on the Lincoln Center campus.

The total 28 films of the primary slate represent 16 countries, including Thailand’s “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives,” which won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and France’s “Carlos,” a film about 1970s terrorist Carlos the Jackal, which is an astounding five hours long. Julie Taymor’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” serves as the festival’s centerpiece, while “Film Socialisme” will mark Jean-Luc Godard’s 27th appearance at the New York festival.

Along with 28 features, this year’s New York Film Festival will also present two Masterworks programs, Elegant Elegies: The Films of Masahiro Shinoda and Fernando de Fuentes’ Revolutionary Trilogy, as well as The Cinema Inside Me: Olivier Assayas and Views from the Avant-Garde. The New York Film Festival, which traditionally emphasizes the art of cinema over Hollywood-style, star-filled premieres and shows fewer movies than other festivals, includes main slate selections along with special events, panel discussions and the experimental film showcase.

The festival also includes four sidebar series: the annual “Views from the Avant-Garde” and “The Cinema Inside Me: Olivier Assayas,” a Q&A session with the director about films that influenced him, as well as the masterworks retrospectives “Elegant Elegies: The Films of Masahiro Shinoda” and “Fernando de Fuentes’ Revolutionary Trilogy.”NYFF101 In addition, there will be 10 special-event screenings, including premieres of new documentaries by Frederick Wiseman (“Boxing Gym”) and Martin Scorsese and Kent Jones (“A Letter to Elia”).
