Via @thenyff: The 56th New York Film Festival poster, designed by Ed Lachman and @jr, has been unveiled! 👀👀 Can you name the director eyes in the photo? Enter our contest at the link in bio to win a signed poster + #NYFF tickets! “The idea came together using JR’s emblematic eyes,” Lachman said. “What is cinema without the mind, the heart, and the eyes of the filmmakers? Using the director’s eyes can symbolize the creative force behind the images and the stories that the Festival has championed and represented to New York over the years, supported by the audience holding the placards of their eyes, and what can be more New York than our alleyways?”

Ahead of the North American premiere of Alice Rohrwacher’s Happy as Lazzaro at @thenyff, Martin Scorsese has officially joined the film as an Executive Producer. “Lazzaro Felice is one of the most unique and exciting films I have seen this year,” Scorsese said. “Alice Rohrwacher is a filmmaker of rare talent, who with this film, cemented her place on the stage of world cinema. Alice masterfully melds the past and the present; folding the pages of history to show us the contradictions and similarities of humanity.” The transfixing third film from Rohrwacher—who was welcomed as our 2016 Filmmaker in Residence—plays October 6 & 7 at the 56th #NYFF. Tickets available at the link in bio. Photos courtesy Patrick Lewis Huban/Starpix.

"Alice Guy-Blaché helped invent cinema as we know it," Manohla Dargis says in @nytimes. Don't miss Pamela B. Green's documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché at @TheNYFF (playing on October 7), telling the extraordinary story of the pioneer director and the 1,000+ films she made, which were largely forgotten. Dargis continues, "The first female filmmaker and among the first to make a fiction film, she made her debut in 1896 with the one-minute “The Cabbage Fairy.” She shot this charmer — which shows a sprite smilingly plucking real babies from a cabbage patch — on a Paris patio while working as a secretary for Gaumont, which would soon be a film powerhouse. Historians ignored and even rejected that date perhaps, as the theorist Jane M. Gaines has suggested, it was unthinkable that a young female secretary supporting a widowed mother could be responsible for an early-cinema milestone." #NYFF
