Last week we held the New York premiere of Joker, a Special Event at the 57th New York Film Festival, featuring Todd Phillips, Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff, production designer Mark Friedberg, cinematographer Lawrence Sher, and more.

During the Q&A, the team discussed vividly bringing to life a reimagined Gotham City, their cinematic influences, Phoenix’s preparation for the role, and the importance of real-world implications of violence in the film. Watch here.

The 57th NYFF continues through October 13! See all available tickets here. For more photos, check out our NYFF Media Center and follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
