The 2018 New York Film Festival (NYFF) Lineup

By Matt Neglia 

We had already received the news that the Opening Night Film for this year’s New York Film Festival (NYFF) would be Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film “The Favourite.” We also found out the Centerpiece Film would be Alfonso Cuaron’s followup to “Gravity,” the black and white shot film “Roma” (Which is also making an appearence at Venice, TIFF and Telluride). And just the other day, we found out that the Closing Night Film would be Julian Schnabel’s film “At Eternity’s Gate” starring Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh. Now, we have the rest of the lineup officially announced.
