James Gray’s Armageddon Time will play in New York Film Festival’s (NYFF) Main Slate on October 12 as a 60th anniversary screening event, Film At Lincoln Center said on Friday (August 5).
Gray and cast will be in attendance alongside NYFF filmmakers and supporters who have been integral to the festival’s success.
