57th NYFF Main Slate Includes Kelly Reichardt’s ‘First Cow,’ Olivier Assayas’ ‘Wasp Network’ & More

Written by on August 6, 2019 

Following the announcements that Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, and Edward Norton’s Motherless Brooklyn would occupy the gala slots at the 57th New York Film Festival, Film at Lincoln Center have now unveiled all 29 films of their Main Slate selection. In terms of highly anticipated fall festival premieres, the lineup includes Kelly Reichardt’s First Cow, Olivier Assayas’ Wasp Network, and Pedro Costa’s Vitalina Varela, as well as a number of favorites from Berlinale and Cannes.

NYFF Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones said, “Cinema is the domain of freedom, and it’s an ongoing struggle to maintain that freedom. It’s getting harder and harder for anyone to make films of real ambition anywhere in this world. Each and every movie in this lineup, big or small, whether it’s made in Italy or Senegal or New York City, is the result of artists behind the camera fighting on multiple fronts to realize a vision and create something new in the world. That includes masters like Martin Scorsese and Pedro Almodóvar and younger filmmakers coming to the festival for the first time like Mati Diop and Angela Schanelec.

Check out the Main Slate below, along with reviews where available and the official poster, designed by Pedro Almodóvar.
