The festival begins on September 28th and runs through October 14. Lee Daniels' The Paperboy is scheduled to open in limited release on October 5. So those attending the New York Film Festival will probably get to see The Paperboy a few days before its official opening (I'm sure one of the cities it'll open in is NYC).

The festival begins on September 28th and runs through October 14. Lee Daniels' The Paperboy is scheduled to open in limited release on October 5. So those attending the New York Film Festival will probably get to see The Paperboy a few days before its official opening (I'm sure one of the cities it'll open in is NYC).

The rest of the story (which includes announcements of galsa tributes for Nicole Kidman and Richard Peña)  from the New York Film Festival press release follows...

NEW YORK, August 21, 2012 —The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today that Nicole Kidman and Richard Peña will be the subject of gala tributes to be presented by the festival for the first time during the historic 50th edition of NYFF. FSLC also announced the addition of Kidman’s upcoming film, Lee Daniels’s adaptation of Pete Dexter’s popular novel, THE PAPERBOY to NYFF’s main slate schedule. The Gala Tribute to Nicole Kidman will take place on Wednesday, October 3, and the Gala Tribute to Richard Peña will take place on Wednesday, October 10.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of NYFF, the Film Society of Lincoln Center has added two gala tributes to its programming schedule of films and events. These tributes celebrate the work of individuals working in film who have made significant artistic contributions to film culture in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

Richard Peña, Selection Committee Chair & Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center. said, “Nicole Kidman is one of film's finest contemporary actresses. Since her breakthrough performance in TO DIE FOR and her bold and provocative appearances in Lars Von Trier's DOGVILLE, Stanley Kubrick's EYES WIDE SHUT, as well as her awarding-winning portrayal of Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry's THE HOURS, Kidman has insisted on finding roles that are complex, bold and demanding. We are excited to honor her with a tribute at the New York Film Festival.”

Added to NYFF’s main slate is Lee Daniels’s THE PAPERBOY. Based on Pete Dexter’s well-received novel and adapted to the screen by Dexter and Academy Award-nominated director Lee Daniels (PRECIOUS), the drama follows Jack Jansen (Zack Efron) as he moves home after getting kicked out of college to the rural backwater of Moat County, Florida. Jack earns money and passes time delivering newspapers until his idolized journalist brother Ward (Matthew McConaughey) returns from Miami to investigate a miscarriage of justice that has landed a local man (John Cusack) on death row. Ward’s investigation is soon joined by Charlotte (Nicole Kidman), the condemned man’s sultry fiancée, and the obviously smitten Jack resolves to get increasingly involved in the case. A Millennium Entertainment release.

General Public tickets will be available September 9th. There will be an advance ticketing opportunity for Film Society of Lincoln Center Patrons and Members prior to that date. For more information visit www.Filmlinc.com/NYFF or call 212 875 5601.
