New York Film Festival Announces Lineup For Second Annual NYFF LIVE Talks With Guests Steve McQueen, Bruce Dern, Claire Denis and More

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the details and participants for the second annual free-to-the-public NYFF LIVE series of filmmaker and film industry conversations. The event will be held at the Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center Amphitheater and the SoHo Apple store.

“Our goal with NYFF LIVE is to give anyone the opportunity to engage with the acclaimed international filmmakers and talent who will be in the city for the New York Film Festival.” said Eugene Hernandez, Director of Digital Strategy for the Film Society of Lincoln Center and a founder of Indiewire. “Making these talks free and open to the public, as well as delivering video from the conversations via our growing digital channels on Youtube and iTunes, is part of a broader strategy aimed at connecting with a wider audience of cinephiles around the world.”

Free Tickets for NYFF LIVE series will be available on location at the box office. Subject to availability, these complimentary tickets admit one per person and are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
