The 45th New York Film Festival, which will take place Sept 28 to Oct 14 this year, has added two new members to its selection committee - US critics Scott Foundas and J Hoberman. They join The Film Society Of Lincoln Center's Richard Pena and Kent Jones and Entertainment Weekly critic Lisa Schwarzbaum in choosing the 2007 festival slate.

Foundas is the film editor and chief film critic for LA Weekly and Hoberman has been the senior film critic at The Village Voice since 1988.

This year's festival sidebar will honour director and screenwriter Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, a renowned member of Brazil 's Cinema Novo movement of the 1950s and 60s. His films include 1965's The Priest And The Girl and 1969's Macunaima (1969).
