The Film Society of Lincoln Center is accepting submissions for the 51st New York Film Festival - one of the country's most prestigious, and one of the oldest in the entire world.

The festival will take place September 27-October 13.

Founded in 1963, as auteur theory and European cinematic modernism were crashing on to the shores of American film culture, the New York Film Festival stands as the second-oldest film festival in North America, and one of the oldest in the world.

The festival hosts an average of 28 feature films in the main slate and 16 short films selected each year. Rounding out the festival each year are Documentaries, Special Event screenings and Views from the Avant-Garde, which premieres non-narrative, experimental film and video. Selections are made by a five-person selection committee chaired by Kent Jones. Director of Programming for the New York Film Festival; Dennis Lim, Director of Programming, Cinematheque; Gavin Smith/Editor of Film Comment and Senior Programmer; Marian Masone, Associate Director of Programming and Amy Taubin, Contributor/Film Comment, Sight & Sound, Artforum.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has been a pioneer for discovering and introducing American audiences to critically-acclaimed works by François Truffaut, R.W. Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, and more during New York’s brightest and boldest annual cinematic showcase. For its 51st New York Film Festival, filmmakers are invited to submit their shorts, feature films, and Views from the Avant-Garde films for early submission until May 27, regular submission by June 24 and late submission by July 13.
