An impressive French presence at the 55th New York Film Festival

A dozen French films, accompanied by eighteen artists, will be shown at the 55th edition of the New York Film Festival, which will take place in the American city from September 28 through October 15, in the presence, in particular, of Isabelle Huppert, Arnaud Desplechin, Agnès Varda, Claire Denis, Mathieu Amalric, Philippe Garrel, Robin Campillo, and Barbet Schroeder.

One of the oldest film festivals in the United States, the NYFF is a much respected institution across the Atlantic, renowned for its love of French cinema. Eleven French films will be present in the festival's Main Slate category, a high number for a section that comprises thirty films.

As is the case each year, the screenings will take place in the Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater. Twenty French artists will travel to New York for the event.

Last but not least, Claude Lanzmann will be present for the screening of Four Sisters, a documentary tetralogy showing in the Special Events section, and Mathieu Amalric will present three short documentaries (C'est presque au bout du monde, Zorn, and Music is Music) during the Spotlight on Documentary.

In terms of classics, Philippe Garrel, who will give a talk, will present two of his early films, Le Révélateur and L'Enfant secret. The Crime of Monsieur Lange by Jean Renoir, Rise and Fall of a Small Film Company by Jean-Luc Godard, L'Atalante by Jean Vigo, Bob le flambeur by Jean-Pierre Melville, and One Sings, the Other Doesn't by Agnès Varda will also be presented. Varda will also meet with the public during a talk.
