NYFF 2023: Films to See at the 61st New York Film Festival


Starting tonight, screenings will begin for the 61st New York Film Festival. NYFF has already had Press and Industry screenings (better known around town as P&I screenings) going on since earlier in the month, but today kicks the festival off. As always, the fest is another opportunity to appreciate the most prestigious movies of the season. Hot on the heels of the Toronto International Film Festival for me (and a little before that, the Telluride Film Festival), New York is very much a homecoming for me. After TIFF, NYFF will seem positively quaint. Make no mistake, however, the quality here is going to be off the charts, as always.

Without question, NYFF is always home to the finest in a year’s cinematic offerings, and 2023 will be no exception. Much like last year, I’ve seen a number of them already at Telluride and TIFF, so I know this to be true. Things like All of Us Strangers, Anatomy of a Fall, Hit Man, Poor Things, and The Zone of Interest impressed me while in Canada and Colorado. That’s just the tip of the iceberg too, as you’ll see below…
