From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The New York Film Festival is one of the most important film festivals in the world, first held in 1963 in New York. The films are selected by the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

The non-competitive festival was established by Amos Vogel and Richard Roud. The present director is Richard Peña, who is also the chairman of the Selection Committee which includes Kent Jones, editor at-large of Film Comment magazine, and critics Melissa Anderson, Scott Foundas of L.A. Weekly, and J. Hoberman of The Village Voice.

The festival is also known for its several sidebars, programs running concurrently with the main festival. These include the annual "Views from the Avant-Garde", a showcase of non-narrative, experimental film, which has been running since 1997.
