NYFF Lineup Includes ‘Ballad of Buster Scruggs’, ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’

     August 7, 2018


The fall film festival season is shaping up nicely. Following the Venice and TIFF lineups, the New York Film Festival has announced the films that will be screening in New York next month, and it’s an impressive lineup. It’s also, however, very indicative of just how competitive the festival season has become, as films like Alfonso Cuaron’s ROMA, the Coen BrothersThe Ballad of Buster Scruggs, and Barry JenkinsIf Beale Street Could Talk will all be premiering elsewhere before screening at New York.

It’s a great lineup regardless, however, and it also includes Ida filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski’s new film Cold War, Claire Denis’ highly anticipated sci-fi effort High Life, and Paul Dano’s directorial debut Wildlife. Yorgos Lanthimos’ excellent-looking The Favourite is the opening night film.

Check out the full NYFF 2018 lineup below. The New York Film Festival runs from September 28th to October 14th.
