Thank you for tuning into our daily podcasts from the 57th New York Film Festival, featuring conversations with the filmmakers behind The Irishman, Marriage Story, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Pain and Glory, Uncut Gems, and more! We also featured extensive talks about two favorites from the festival now playing at Film at Lincoln Center, Parasite and Synonyms. Listen to them all here.
Today on our weekly podcast, we’re featuring a special NYFF Live discussion presented by the Writers Guild of America, East. At the festival, five screenwriters gathered to discuss writing New York City on the page and how it goes beyond the quintessential urban landscape. Panelists include JC Chandor, Geoffrey Fletcher, Gillian Robespierre, and Steven Zaillian, with moderation by Paul Schrader. They discussed the screenwriting process and capturing NYC in their films, including The Irishman, Taxi Driver, Precious, Obvious Child, and Margin Call.
