“I am truly honoured to have my film Armageddon Time chosen as the 60th Anniversary screening at NYFF, and to return to this great festival for a third time,” said Gray. “This is a film that’s deeply personal – it’s inspired by my childhood growing up in New York City – so I can’t imagine a more fitting place to share it.”

“For this 60th edition of the New York Film Festival, building on our expansion to venues throughout New York City over the past two years, we’re proud to partner with arthouses and arts venues in the five boroughs to bring NYFF to neighbourhoods around our city,” said said Eugene Hernandez, Executive Director of the New York Film Festival. “There’s a powerful New York streak running through NYFF’s selection this year and we’re exhilarated that James Gray, a NYFF veteran, will centre our anniversary efforts to share our Festival more widely this year.”

“James Gray is without question one of the great New York filmmakers of his generation. In film after film, he has captured both the physical realities and the psychic life of his hometown as a city of strivers and immigrants,” said Dennis Lim, Artistic Director, New York Film Festival. “We could not be happier to celebrate this anniversary year with a special screening of the enormously moving Armageddon Time, his most personal — and most New York — movie.”

The NYFF Main Slate selection committee, chaired by Dennis Lim, also includes Eugene Hernandez, Florence Almozini, K. Austin Collins, and Rachel Rosen.

Armageddon Time will screen at Alice Tully Hall on October 12.

The 2022 New York Film Festival runs from September 30 through October 16.
