This year marks the 50th anniversary of the New York Film Festival. The festival which runs from September 28 – October 14th will feature seven films directed by women and also will be honoring actress Nicole Kidman.

Richard Peña (who is retiring and also being honored at NYFF), Selection Committee Chair and Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, praised Kidman’s body of work:

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.

Kidman will be the first honoree during the film festival at her Gala Tribute on October 3rd which will consist of a conversation with Kidman and a screening of her new film The Paperboy. Directed by Lee Daniels, The Paperboy was just added to the NYFF roster. While Kidman has been given praise for her performance in the film, it received mixed reviews during its Cannes premiere.
