New York Film Festival brass have announced the full line-up, adding Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or winner Parasite, Céline Sciamma’s Portrait Of A Lady On Fire, and Nadav Lapid’s Golden Bear–winner Synonyms,to the roster.

Overall the slate encompasses films from 17 countries and includes Pedro Almodóvar’s Pain And Glory from Spain, Juliano Dornelles’ Cannes Jury Prize–winner Bacurau from Brazil, French auteur Olivier Assayas’ Wasp Network, Mati Diop’s Cannes Grand Prix–winner Atlantics: A Ghost Love Story, Kelly Reichardt’s anticipated First Cow, and a posthumous screening of Agnès Varda’s final film Varda By Agnès.

Festival director and chair of the selection committee Kent Jones said, “Cinema is the domain of freedom, and it’s an ongoing struggle to maintain that freedom. It’s getting harder and harder for anyone to make films of real ambition anywhere in this world. Each and every movie in this lineup, big or small, whether it’s made in Italy or Senegal or New York City, is the result of artists behind the camera fighting on multiple fronts to realize a vision and create something new in the world. That includes masters like Martin Scorsese and Pedro Almodóvar and newcomers to the festival like Mati Diop and Angela Schanelec.”

This year’s festival poster is designed by Almodóvar, who said, “For the basis of this year’s New York Film Festival poster, I used a photo of a still life that I exhibited at the Marlborough Gallery. The masses of color on which the text is printed are reminiscent of an animated sequence that appears in my latest film, Pain and Glory, though for this version I have chosen less bright colors, using muted shades of red, blue, green, and mauve. These colors correspond to the palette in which I seem to move lately.”

As previously announced, the NYFF57 Opening Night is the world premiere of Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, the US premiere of Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story is Centerpiece, and the New York premiere of Edward Norton’s Motherless Brooklyn will close the festival.
