The 56th New York Film Festival is right around the corner (September 28 – October 14)! On this week’s podcast, we’re looking ahead to this year’s rich and diverse lineup with an in-depth conversation with the festival’s programmers.

Michael Koresky (Film Society Editorial Director) sat down with programmers Kent Jones and Dennis Lim to discuss this year’s Main Slate, from Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite (Opening Night),to Julien Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate (Closing Night). Their discussion also touches on the festival’s many sidebars, including Spotlight on Documentary, Convergence, and Projections.
