Organisers at the 51st New York Film Festival have announced the official sections, including the Cannes trio of Abdellatif Kechiche’s Palme d’Or winner Blue Is The Warmest Color, the Coen Brother’s Inside Llewyn Davis and Alexander Payne’s Nebraska.

Also set to screen at the festival, running from Sept 27-Oct 13, are Sebastián Lelio’s Berlinale hit Gloria, Jia Zhangke’s A Touch Of Sin, Rithy Panh’s The Missing Picture and Declan Lowney’s UK hit Alan Partridge.

As previously announced, Paul Greengrass’ Captain Philips and Spike Jonze’s Her bookend the event while Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is the centerpiece gala.

“I love the level of diversity in the main slate selections, which includes documentaries, biographies, comedies, adventures, epics, chamber pieces, elegies, explorations and affirmations,” said NYFF director of programming and selection committee chair Kent Jones.
