With only a few days left of TIFF, Toronto is starting to empty out, but poutine-bloated, sleep-deprived critics aren’t going to have much time to recover: in just ten days, the New York Film Festival gets underway. Film Society Lincoln Center’s fest, now in its 53rd year, has a long reputation for combining the best of auteurist festival cinema with some glitzy Oscar-season premieres, and it looks to be continuing that this year.
The festival kicks off on September 25th, and EW have nabbed the festival’s official trailer, which you can watch below. The promo includes some footage we’ve seen before, but plenty that we haven’t, including the first glimpse of Don Cheadle as Miles Davis in “Miles Ahead,” which closes the festival, snippets from Rebecca Miller’s “Maggie’s Plan” starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, and Julianne Moore, and more.
Opener “The Walk,” premiere “Bridge Of Spies,” mid-festival showcase “Steve Jobs,” “Carol,” “The Lobster,” “Arabian Nights,” “Brooklyn” and all kinds of other treasures can also be seen. As far as we can tell, what we can’t see is anything from “Junun,” Paul Thomas Anderson and Jonny Greenwood’s top-secret new 54-minute documentary, but perhaps we’ve missed it? Anyway, take a look below, and see if you can spot anything we couldn’t. The festival kicks off September 25th, and tickets are now on sale.
