NEW YORK (AP) — Lincoln Center will host a tribute to the late documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles during the upcoming New York Film Festival.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Monday that the event, co-hosted by the Maysles family, will take place October 4 at Alice Tully Hall. Maysles will be celebrated with in-person guests, clips from his work and special attention to his work with Maysles Documentary Center, the Harlem nonprofit he co-founded.
Maysles died in March at the age of 88. His 60-year career spanned seminal documentaries of so-called "direct cinema," including "Gimme Shelter," ''Grey Gardens" and "Salesman."
The 53rd New York Film Festival begins Friday.
