The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.'s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
The Film Society is best known for two world-class international festivals-the New York Film Festival (the most famous and prestigious in the country), and New Directors/New Films (celebrating new cinematic artists). It runs two state-of-the-art, year-round cinemas, the Walter Reade Theater (268 seats) and the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center-Francesca Beale Theater (150 seats), Howard Gilman Theater (90 seats), and Amphitheater (75 seats)-and publishes the country's most respected cinematic journal, Film Comment. Each year the organization presents its annual Chaplin Award Gala Tribute honoring legendary stars and industry leaders of our generation at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall. At various times of the year, the Film Society partners with Hollywood studios to present premieres and special live appearances.
