Apatow, Forster, Morris Booked for New Yorker Festival

(Photo: EmDashes)

By S.T. VanAirsdale

New Yorker devotee EmDashes has the first glimpse at this year's New Yorker Festival line-up, always a high point of the fall arts season as well as one of its most impossible, expensive tickets. The film-related slate is typically strong, with directors Judd Apatow, Errol Morris and Marc Forster among others booked for Oct. 5-7 at venues around the city. I'm holding out for Morris' conversation with Philip Gourevitch about Abu Ghraib and the filmmaker's new doc Standard Operating Procedure (complete with a sneak preview); Neil LaBute's chat with John Lahr shouldn't be half-bad either (the writer/director will also sign copies of his book Wrecks: And Other Plays on Oct. 7).

Follow the jump for other film notes, including David Byrne's paean to bicycle culture in the city. Really. And check out EmDashes for the full slate. Tickets go on sale Sept. 15 at Ticketmaster, by phone at (877) 391-0545 and at Festival Headquarters, located at 125 W. 18th St. (H/T: Art Fag City)
