The Film Society of Lincoln Center is pleased to announce Pedro Almodóvar, John Waters, Tilda Swinton, and Marielle Heller as the first round of guest speakers for the 50th Anniversary Gala on Monday, April 29, 2019 in Alice Tully Hall. Reflecting and building upon the organization’s half-century introducing New York audiences to many of the industry’s most acclaimed and important filmmakers, the Gala will honor the Film Society’s legendary past and vibrant present, and look ahead as we extend our commitment to the film community.
The Gala is the most important fundraising event of the Film Society’s landmark anniversary year, and all proceeds will benefit the organization in its mission to support the art and craft of cinema. The Chaplin Award Gala will return in 2020.
