New York Film Festival complete lineup

August 16, 2010 |  1:31 pm

Clint Clint Eastwood's latest directorial effort, "Hereafter," a picture starring Matt Damon about three people whose lives are uniquely affected by death, has been chosen as the closing night movie at the upcoming New York Film Festival.

The festival, which kicks off Sept. 24 with David Fincher's "The Social Network," will feature 28 films and runs through Oct. 10.

As my colleague Steven Zeitchik noted when it was announced that the movie about Facebook would open the fall festival, the event has a reputation for screening "highbrow, twee movies," such as "The Queen" and "The Class" in years past. 

The 48th annual festival seems to follow in that vein. Julie Taymor's adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" serves as the festival's centerpiece, while "Film Socialisme" will mark Jean-Luc Godard's 27th appearance at the New York festival. There are also a number of international selections, including Thailand's "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives," which won the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and France's "Carlos," a film about 1970s terrorist Carlos the Jackal, which is an astounding five hours long.

The festival's complete lineup follows after the jump.
