New York Film Festival gets old school in a good way
The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced the special events and anniversary screenings for the 50th edition of The New York Film Festival, which runs September 28 through October 14. The 17-day festival highlights both classic and new global cinema. As part of the special Masterworks anniversary screenings, the festival has decided to show an interesting trifecta of cinema classics. It is certainly an appealing compilation of films, but it seems unlikely that anyone would protest the line-up.
The classic showcase screenings will include Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Rob Reiner's comedy classic The Princess Bride, and David Lean's epic Lawrence of Arabia. This broad yet undoubtedly favorable range of well-known titles will compliment the festival's ongoing screenings and premieres.
There will also be a sneak peak screening of Oliver Stone's new documentary, The Untold History of the United States, which is focused on America's initial involvement in World War II.
Public tickets will be available September 9th here.
