The Film Society of Lincoln Center will honour Kate Winslet on October 6 during the 53rd New York Film Festival with a dinner and conversation with Director of Programming and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones.

Danny Boyle's biopic, Steve Jobs, starring Michael Fassbinder (as Jobs), Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Michael Stuhlbarg, written by Aaron Sorkin, is the festival Centerpiece.

Past honorees include Nicole Kidman, Pedro Almodóvar, David Cronenberg, Cate Blanchett, Ralph Fiennes, past Director of Programming and Selection Committee Chair Richard Peña and last year’s guests, Richard Gere and Ethan Hawke.

Steve Jobs has four screenings on October 3 - 6:00pm and 9:00pm at Alice Tully Hall; 6:15pm and 9:15pm at the Walter Reade Theater.

This year's New York Film Festival runs from September 25 to October 11.
