“The Power of the Dog” announced as NYFF’s Centerpiece selection

The New York Film Festival has just announced The Power of the Dog as the Centerpiece selection for its 59th edition! Take a look below:

The festival runs 24 September-10 October and the film will make its New York premiere at Alice Tully Hall on October 1.

Director Jane Campion said:

“I am very honored that The Power of the Dog has been selected as the Centerpiece Gala at this year’s New York Film Festival. Public screenings we long took for granted feel exceptional now, so it is going to be a very emotional and joyous experience for me and my team to be there and present the film to such a film-celebrating audience.”

And Dennis Lim, NYFF Director of Programming, said:

“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Jane Campion back to the festival with one of her very best films. Everything about The Power of the Dog is alive with surprise: its narrative turns, its rich characterizations, its complex ideas about masculinity and repression. It will introduce many to the work of the underappreciated novelist Thomas Savage, but it also reminds us of what cinema can do as a medium for accessing and expressing inner life.” 

Very exciting news indeed!!
