Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, plans for NYFF have yet to be fully confirmed. The current plan is to hold a hybrid event from September 17 to October 11. Organisers have said the 58th edition of the festival - which will open with Steve McQueen's Lovers Rock and have Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland as its centrepiece gala - will focus on outdoor and virtual screenings.
