“`The Film Society of Lincoln Center has several events lined up that are worth noting for 2017:

~ 26th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival – A fine tribute to comedy  legends – Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder – with a 50th anniversary screening on Thursday, January 19th at 6:15p of Mel Brooks’  The Producers, with a poster exhibition honoring their work. They will be on display in the Furman Gallery of Walter Reade Theater for the duration of this fest; and a video tribute running in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater of film and television clips from some of Mostel and Wilder’s best moments. NYJFF tickets are currently on sale to Film Society and Jewish Museum members; and available to the public on Thursday, December 22nd.

~ 44th Annual Chaplin Award Gala – Honoring the legendary career of two-time Oscar-winner Robert De Niro; a remarkable talent and a legendary actor,  who portrayed a few of the most unique characters in film history. The event will be attended by noted presenters, and includes cinematic and interview snipets, culminating in the presentation of the Chaplin Award.

“`The Annual Gala began in 1972, with Charlie Chaplin returning from exile to accept the commendation. Since then, the award has been re-named for Chaplin. Many film industry’s most notable talents have been honored, such as Bette Davis, James Stewart, Laurence Olivier, Billy Wilder, Diane Keaton, Federico Fellini, Robert Altman, Meryl Streep, Martin Scorsese, Tom Hanks, Alfred Hitchcock, Barbra Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Sidney Poitier, Michael Douglas, Catherine Deneuve, and last year, Morgan Freeman.  The Lincoln Center’s most important fundraising event, this supports the organization’s work to enhance the awareness, accessibility, and understanding of the art of cinema. The upcoming gala is May 8th at the David H. Koch Theater.

“`The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting art, and elevating the craft of cinema. The Lincoln Center shines a spotlight on the everlasting, yet, evolving importance of the moving image. This nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film.
