New York Film Festival 2018 Main Slate Lineup

Shoplifters, The Favourite, Roma, and other films in the Main Slate sections of the 2018 New York Film Festival (NYFF) has been announced. The 56th Annual New York Film Festival is a “film festival held every autumn in New York City, presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center (FSLC). Founded in 1963 by Richard Roud and Amos Vogel with the support of Lincoln Center president William Schuman, it is one of the longest-running and most prestigious film festivals in the United States. The non-competitive festival is centered around a “Main Slate” of typically 20-30 feature films, with sidebars for experimental cinema and retrospectives, and recently introduced documentary and trans-media sections.”

Twenty-two countries will be represented in the Main Slate of the 2018 New York Film Festival, including: A Faithful Man, The Favourite, Burning, Happy as Lazzaro, The Image Book, and others.
