Most of our online coverage of the New York Film Festival has centered on in-depth interviews with directors (which you can read here), following in the footsteps of the September/October issue’s multiple articles. During the festival proper, we took our celebration of NYFF films live with the Film Comment Roundtable, lasting over an hour and held in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center in front of a packed audience.

Our esteemed participants included Wesley Morris of The New York Times; Eric Hynes, critic, reporter, and FILM COMMENT columnist; Michael Koresky, staff writer of The Criterion Collection and co-editor-in-chief of Reverse Shot; Aliza Ma, programmer, critic, and author of the FILM COMMENT September/October cover story on The Assassin; FC Senior Editor Nicolas Rapold; and FC Digital Editor Violet Lucca.
