New York Film Festival 2012
September 28–October 14
Since 1963, the New York Film Festival has showcased the latest work from the world's most venerable filmmakers—the likes of Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodóvar and Alain Resnais, to name just a few—and introduced some of the most innovative international talent to New York audiences. The 17-day festival, organized by The Film Society of Lincoln Center, also presents classics, a full slate of documentaries and full-length features, and other special events. Ang Lee's The Life of Pi opens the festival, and is the first 3-D film to be awarded the honor. The 2012 edition marks the 50th anniversary of the event.
