2015 New York Film Festival Lineup

There are two other major film festivals that have impact on the Oscar race, outside of the Toronto/Venice/Telluride trifecta. There is AFI Fest, which usually has at least one late breaking contender emerge, and then there is the New York Film Festival, which has attracted some high quality projects in recent years. This year is no exception. A great slate of foreign and indie contenders join big Oscar potentials like Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs, Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, Don Cheadle's directorial debut Miles Ahead, and the big kahuna of the bunch, Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies, which is definitely aiming for Oscars with this debut. Plus, Carol and Brooklyn, as well as Michael Moore's latest continue their festival train on the way to potential Oscar glory.
