The prestige cinema event of NYC's fall season, the New York Film Festival stretches back to 1963, when it established a mission of bringing the best work from around the world to Lincoln Center. Highly curated, this year's Main Slate includes 31 titles.

Tickets for NYFF are now on sale and can be purchased directly at the Alice Tully Hall box office from 10am to 6pm, daily. You can also purchase them online at or by phone using CenterCharge at 212.721.6500 (10am–9pm, daily).

The options are varied, but essentially, single tickets for the Alice Tully Hall screenings are $20 for Film Society of Lincoln Center members, $25 for nonmembers. (Save on service charges by buying tickets in person at the box office.) Screenings at other venues are $5 cheaper. The opening night, centerpiece and closing-night selections are $25–$50 pricier.
