The 51th New York Film Festival

The 51th New York Film Festival - Sep 27 – Oct 13, 2013

Since 1963, The New York Film Festival has continued to bring new and important cinematic works by filmmakers from around the world. The Festival includes Main Slate selections along with special events, panel discussions, the experimental film showcase Views from the Avant-Garde, and much more. The New York Film Festival highlights the best in world cinema, featuring top films from celebrated filmmakers as well as fresh new talent.

This year’s New York Film Festival will draw heavily from the Cannes  Film Festival.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced the festival lineup Monday. Many films that premiered in May at Cannes will fill the festival’s slate, including Alexander Payne’s Midwest road trip “Nebraska,” the Coen brothers’ folk revival “Inside Llewyn Davis,” James Gray’s period drama “The Immigrant” and Jim Jarmusch’s vampire tale “Only Lovers Left Alive.”

The Film Society announced earlier that Paul Greengrass’ “Captain Phillips” would be the festival opener, Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” the centerpiece and Spike Jonze’s “Her” the festival closer.

Tickets to the 51st New York Film Festival go on sale to the General Public on Sunday, September 8 at 12:00pm. Tickets can be purchased right here on, at the Alice Tully Hall Box Office, or over the phone via CenterCharge and TTY.
