The Film Society of Lincoln Center has pulled back the curtain on the New York Film Festival's Projections lineup, a slate of experimental films unspooling October 3-5. In all, we will see 13 international programs, with 63 film and video works. Curators are tastemakers Dennis Lim, Aily Nash and Gavin Smith.

Projections brings together short, medium and feature-length works from groundbreaking filmmakers and artists, with an eye on innovative storytelling, the avant-garde, documentary hybrid and contemporary art, among other genres.

Highlights include new works from NYFF vets Kevin Jerome Everson ("Fe26," "Sound That," and "Sugarcoated Arsenic"), Ben Rivers ("Things"), Ben Russell ("Atlantis"), Sylvia Schedelbauer ("Sea of Vapors"), and Deborah Stratman ("Second Sighted"). Jacqueline Goss returns to the festival with world premiere "The Measures," which explores the metric system’s origins via 18th-century astronomy.

Feature-length works in this year’s selection include Phillip Warnell's "Ming of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys in the Air," and Eric Baudelaire's "Letters to Max." Contemporary visual artists are, meanwhile, making their first appearances at NYFF this year, including the 2014 Turner Prize–winning Laure Prouvost, artist and theorist Hito Steyerl and Victoria Fu, featured in this year’s Whitney Biennial.

Additional announcements forthcoming. Full Projections lineup after the jump:
