In addition to the NYFF Live talks being free and open to the public on a space available basis, the talks will also be available online, at FilmLinc.com.

Stated Eugene Hernandez, Director of Digital Strategy for the Film Society of Lincoln Center: “Our goal with NYFF LIVE is to give anyone the opportunity to engage with the acclaimed international filmmakers and talent who will be in the city for the New York Film Festival. Making these talks free and open to the public, as well as delivering video from the conversations via our growing digital channels on YouTube and iTunes, is part of a broader strategy aimed at connecting with a wider audience of cinephiles around the world.”

The conversations will be held at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater and the SoHo Apple Store. Free tickets for NYFF Live Talks will be available at the Munroe Film Center box office on a first-come, first-served basis one hour prior to the conversations and screenings.
