Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> New York Film Festival >> 2009
Notching its 47th year in 2009, aims - unlike most other festivals - not to be a marketplace but rather a celebration of talent, bringing together the cream of the crop from other festivals around the globe.
Highlights this year include the Palme d'Or winning The White Ribbon and Allan Resnais' Wild Grass.
This year's festival also celebrates the 70th anniversary of The Wizard Of Oz with a screening of the newly restored edition.
