Led by Resnais, Almodovar and a newcomer called Precious, the New York Film Festival slate is up!

Just announced: the official New York Film Festival slate! Let the chatter commence! The slate naturally boasts films from all over the globe: Italy, Portugal, France, Phillipines, Korea. And it’s got plenty of veterans: Catherine Breillat (Bluebeard), Claire Denis (White Material), Michael Haneke (The White Ribbon), Todd Solondz (Life During Wartime), and Andrzej Wajda (Sweet Rush).

The Festival will open with the U.S. premiere of Alain Resnais’s Wild Grass (Les herbes folles), close with Almodovar’s latest, and boast as Centerpiece Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire which got a lot of positive attention at Sundance. But what plenty of festival goers will be talking about is Lars Van Trier’s Antichrist (trailer above), which caused quite a stir at Cannes.

New Yorkers, get ready, the Festival is almost here!

    There’s been some chatter about changes in ticketing for the festival. Any word on what these changes will entail?

  2. We’re going to be putting more ticketing information up on the web shortly, but here are some points to be aware of in terms of the priority ordering period for members:

    – Members will receive a Priority Ordering Form in the mail during the week of August 24
    – Once completed, forms may be mailed, faxed, or dropped off at the Tully box office or FSLC offices
    – The color of the Member Ordering Forms will indicate an individual’s Member status (i.e., More than 10 years, 5-9 years, New-4 years), and will prioritize their order
    – Tickets will be mailed to Members once orders are filled

    Hope that helps, we hope to have more complete information up shortly!
