Friday, September 30, 2011
In this week's Arts File, Kerry Nolan speaks with Salon.com senior writer Andrew O'Hehir about this year's New York Film Festival, which kicks off Friday night with Roman Polanski's comedic drama Carnage. The two-week-long event at Lincoln Center also features films by the likes of David Cronenberg, Lars von Trier, and Wim Wenders and big stars like George Clooney, Kate Winslet, and Kirsten Dunst. It's the 49th year for the festival, but the first with screenings at the new Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, a $41 million facility that opened in June.
