Watch It Now: Hour-Long Talks with Payne, Wenders, Ceylan, Ferrara, Berlinger & Sinofsky from NYFF ‘11


All of our 2011 New York Film Festival coverage is here.

If you weren’t able to attend this year's New York Film Fest – or even if you did, since speaking from experience, you couldn’t possibly have caught it all – the good folks at Film Society of Lincoln Center have put up a selection of highlights from this year’s festival on You Tube, including post-screening press conferences with the filmmakers behind “Shame,” “Miss Bala,” “The Skin I Live In” and “Martha Marcy May Marlene.”

But beyond the soundbite-friendly clips, there’s already a rich archive of the festival’s longer-form conversations with “The Descendants” director Alexander Payne, “Paradise Lost 3” directors Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, “Pina” director Wim Wenders, “Once Upon a Time in Anatolia” director Nuri Bilge Ceylan, “4:44: Last Day on Earth” director Abel Ferrara as well as a panel on the late Pauline Kael with panelists such as New York Magazine’s David Edelstein and James Toback. In other words, there goes your entire afternoon and possibly evening, if you continue to check out the other goodies hidden on the Film Society's YouTube Channel.
