Pedro Almodóvar, Darren Aronofsky, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zoe Kazan, Michael Moore, Dee Rees, Martin Scorsese, Tilda Swinton, and John Waters are the featured guest speakers at tonight's 50th Anniversary Gala where the new name Film at Lincoln Center will be revealed in the lobby of Alice Tully Hall before the ceremony.

“There are so many ways that people can see films now, but we believe that the curation we bring—the careful consideration of what we present and how we present it—keeps us at the heart of the culture,” said Film at Lincoln Center Executive Director Lesli Klainberg. “We are privileged to be part of Lincoln Center and the New York cultural landscape, and as we move into the future, we want to continue expanding our impact and reach ever-larger audiences. We’re excited to unveil our new name and branding, which give us the opportunity to look forward.”

The 50th Mixtape runs from June 27 through September 11.

This Is Cinema Now: 21st Century Debuts runs from July 19 through July 31.

Make My Day: American Movies in the Age of Reagan runs from August 23 through September 2.
