Following their gala selections of Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying, Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck, and Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel, the New York Film Festival have now unveiled their full Main Slate. Their picks include Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name, Lucrecia Martel’s Zama, Greta Gerwig’s debut Lady Bird, as well as the Palme d’Or-winning The Square and more favorites from Cannes, Berlin, Locarno, and Sundance.

“Every year, I’m asked about the themes in our Main Slate line-up, and every year I say the same thing: we choose the best films we see, and the common themes and preoccupations arise only after the fact,” NYFF Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones says. “As I look at this slate of beautiful work, I could just make a series of simple observations: that these films come from all over the globe; that there is a nice balance of filmmakers known and unknown to many here in New York; that the overall balance between frankness and artistry holds me in awe; that there are two gala selections with the word ‘wonder’ in their titles; and that eight of the 25 films were directed by women.”
