The annual New York Film Festival finds its home on the Upper West Side's renowned "Leonard Bernstein Place." Therefore, it's quite fitting that Bradley Cooper's latest cinematic creation centered around the iconic composer and conductor, titled "Maestro," is set to make its North American debut at this very festival.
In an announcement made by Film at Lincoln Center, it has been revealed that "Maestro" will proudly take the spotlight as the Spotlight Gala of the NYFF, scheduled for October 2nd. This year, the spotlight will shine on the newly reopened David Geffen Hall, now equipped with state-of-the-art Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies in preparation for the event.
Cooper wears multiple hats for "Maestro" as he not only directs the film but also steps into the role of Bernstein himself. The film also features Carey Mulligan portraying Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein, Bernstein's wife. Before its NYFF screening, "Maestro" will also grace the Venice Film Festival. Following its festival circuit, a theatrical release is planned for November 22nd, followed by a debut on Netflix on December 20th.
The impressive ensemble cast of "Maestro" boasts names like Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Michael Urie, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor. Behind the scenes, industry titans Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg take on producer roles.
Kicking off on September 29th, the New York Film Festival will raise its curtains with "May December," another eagerly anticipated Netflix production.
