NYFF 2023 Main Slate Includes New Films From Jonathan Glazer, Yorgos Lanthimos, Alice Rohrwacher & More

There’s quite a bit of uncertainty surrounding the film industry as we end the summer and look towards the fall, courtesy of the dual strikes from the WGA and SAG. We’ve already seen some high-profile films vacate the fall space and move into 2024, but there are still quite a few big projects that are hoping to take part in the yearly fall festival circuit. That means events like the New York Film Festival still have quite a few great films to show, even if there aren’t going to be many big stars there to promote.

As unveiled today by NYFF, the Main Slate of the event features 32 films from 18 countries and features a plethora of big-name filmmakers. Folks like Andrew Haigh, Alice Rohrwacher, Hong Sangsoo (with two films), Wim Wenders, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Jonathan Glazer all have films screening at the event. And if you weren’t able to make it to Cannes this year, you’ll get a chance to check out some of the 2023 award winners such as Justine Triet’sAnatomy of a Fall,” Nuri Bilge Ceylan’sAbout Dry Grasses,” and Aki Kaurismäki’sFallen Leaves.”

“The unsettled state of the industry is an unavoidable talking point these days, but my hope is that our festival, as it has done through its 61-year history, will serve as a reminder that the art of cinema is in robust health,” said Dennis Lim, Artistic Director of the New York Film Festival. “The filmmakers in this year’s Main Slate are grappling with eternal questions—about how movies relate to the world, about what it means to make art from life, about the most interesting ways to approach the contemporary moment and the historical past—and the answers they have proposed are thrilling in their variety, ingenuity, and urgency. We can’t wait for our audience, so vital to the festival experience, to discover these 32 new films.”

As mentioned, there’s still quite a bit that could change between now and NYFF. But as we get closer to the opening night of September 29, things are looking pretty good for the prestigious event.
