Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> New York Film Festival >> 2008
Now in its 46th year, the New York Film Festival has a slightly different remit to many going on around the world. Rather than being a marketplace, it aims to be a showcase of talent, bringing together the best work from festivals around the world - from newcomers and established filmmakers.
The festival also features a Views from the Avant-Garde section which premieres non-narrative, experimental film and video. This year's main slate features 28 films from 18 different countries.
This year's festival also featured a "near-complete retrospective" of Japanese fillmmaker Nagisa Oshima.
