Daily | NYFF 2014 | Mankiewicz, Revivals, Shorts

All About Eve

“Mankiewicz crafted three magnificent and archetypal characters with Bette Davis’s Margo Channing, Anne Baxter’s Eve Harrington, and George Sanders’s Addison DeWitt.”

Back in June, the Film Society of Lincoln Center announced that this year’s New York Film Festival would feature a Joseph L. Mankiewicz retrospective. And now they’ve rolled out the full program. What’s more, the NYFF’s beefed up the Revivals section and added a fresh round of Short Film selections. With lineups set for the Main Slate, the Spotlight on Documentary and Projections, the full program for the NYFF’s 52nd edition is just about there. The dates: September 26 through October 12.

On this round, I’m going to go without the full descriptions of each film from the festival, but you can find those right here.
