The main slate of the 52nd New York Film Festival has shaped up to give the Toronto Film Festival a run for its money in terms of premieres and Oscar-bound glory. The North American festivals (including Telluride) often battle it out to get the biggest hits and the Oscar hopefuls. TIFF director Cameron Bailey even went so far as to draw a line in the sand about any film world premiering at a North American festival before his. By all accounts, that threat failed. But with heavy hitters like Gone Girl, Inherent Vice and Foxcatcher debuting, NYFF has plenty for cinephiles and lovers of international cinema in the form of Cannes hits Goodbye to Language 3D from Jean-Luc Godard and Clouds of Sils Maria from Olivier Assayas. NYFF runs from September 26th to October 12th.
