The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced the main slate of selections for the 50th New York Film Festival, which will run September 28-October 14, 2012.  The lineup includes work from Olivier Assayas, Noah Baumbach, Leos Carax, Brian De Palma, Michael Haneke, Abbas Kiarostami, Ang Lee, Cristian Mungiu, Sally Potter, Alain Resnais, Raul Ruiz and Robert Zemeckis.

“The films making up the main slate of this year's NYFF, have in common a general quality of fearlessness that unites otherwise very disparate works," Richard Peña, Selection Committee Chair & Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, said. "These are films that go all the way, works willing to take the risk or chance that by doing so they may be bringing audiences to places they might rather not go.”

Award winners from festivals around the world will be presented for the first time for New York audiences at the fest.  These universally acclaimed winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Michael Haneke's "Amour,"  Christian Petzold’s Cold War thriller, "Barbara," a winner of the SIlver Bear for Best Director at this year’s Berlin Film Festival; Cristian Mungiu’s "Beyond the Hills," which won the Best Actress prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where Mungiu also received the Best Screenplay award. The festival also includes a slew of as-yet-unseen Venice and Toronto titles, including Brian DePalma's "Passion," Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" and Sally Potter's "Ginger and Rosa."
 
A quartet of World Premieres among the main slate lineup include Alan Berliner’s "unflinching essay on the fragility of being human," "First Cousin Once Removed," which joins the previously announced Opening Night, Centerpiece and Closing Night Gala trio of Ang Lee’s "Life of Pi," David Chase’s "Not Fade Away" and Robert Zemeckis’s "Flight."

Additional special events, sidebars, panels and first–time programs will be announced in subsequent weeks as well as additional programming to complement the main-slate of films, including NYFF’s Masterworks programs and Views from the Avant-Garde, which will include additional works by Main Slate filmmakers João Pedro Rodrigues and Raul Ruiz.
 
The 17-day New York Film Festival's selection committee, chaired by Peña, also includes: Melissa Anderson, Contributor, Village Voice; Scott Foundas, Associate Program Director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center; Todd McCarthy, Chief Film Critic, The Hollywood Reporter; and Amy Taubin, Contributing Editor, Film Comment and Sight and Sound.
 
The complete lineup of the 50th New York Film Festival is available on the next page.
