    New York Film Festival 2020 - what's going to happen?

    New York Film Festival 2020 - What's going to happen?

    FESTIVAL COVERAGE THREAD

    I thought there would not be one, a "not" one, like Telluride.. But they seem to be planning some kind of pandemic compromise, as with Venice and Toronto. I don't know how much of an actual festival there will be, frankly. The announcement is, that it will take a "hybrid shape with a 'focus on outdoor and virtual screenings with indoor screenings as possible and directed by state and health officials" (-IndieWire).

    The Centeriece film was announced last week: Chloe (The Rider)'s Nomadland starring Frances McDormond.

    Now "The 2020 edition of the New York Film Festival will open with the world premiere of Steve McQueen's 'Lovers Rock,' it was announced today." This is part of a sequence entitled "Small Axe" about Black West Indians in England and their struggle against racism, which will be shown later on BBC One and Amazon Prime. Two other films in the "Small Axe" series will also be shown as part of the 20200 NYFF Main Slate.
