“In a year of deep, deep anxieties and uncertainties, it brings me comfort to return to the New York Film Festival… I am happy to see that some sacred things, like NYFF, can rise from the ashes. NYFF58 has gone virtual nationwide, with supplemental drive-in screenings, making it the most accessible the festival has ever been.” – FLC Member Larry Fried

Kicking off on September 17 with the World Premiere of Steve McQueen’s exhilarating drama Lovers Rock, this year’s reimagined New York Film Festival continued with drive-in screenings in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens and virtual screenings available nationwide. As we anticipate tonight’s premiere of Chloé Zhao’s Centerpiece selection Nomadland, take a look back at our week one highlights in the recap above.

We’ll see you for more of the best in cinema through October 11! See the complete drive-in and virtual cinema schedule here.
