C’mon C’mon, starring Joaquin Phoenix and directed by Mike Mills, will have its world premiere in Telluride. Dune is ticketed for Venice ahead of Warner Bros’ theatrical release in October. Sean Baker’s Red Rocket and Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch had their world premieres in July in Cannes.

Along with the Spotlight slate, Film at Lincoln Center announced plans to honor the centenary of late co-founder and film programmer Amos Vogel with a Spotlight sidebar. Vogel’s curatorial career included many years running the influential film society Cinema 16 as well as stints at Lincoln Center and Grove Press. His classic study, Film as a Subversive Art, will soon be reissued by The Film Desk.

FLC’s tribute focuses on the NYFF period, bookended by screenings devoted to his work before and after his involvement with the festival. Included are films from Glauber Rocha, John Huston, and trailblazers of the Czech New Wave; Lebert Bethune’s Malcolm X: Struggle for Freedom, Santiago Álvarez’s dispatch from postrevolutionary Cuba, Now; and David Neuman and Ed Pincus’s snapshot of Civil Rights-era Mississippi, Black Natchez. Also on the docket are works from the era’s burgeoning avant-garde scene, such as Tony Conrad’s The Flicker and a world premiere restoration of Robert Frerck’s Nebula II.

The Spotlight retrospective will be followed by tributes at repertory cinemas across New York City, among them Anthology Film Archives, Film Forum, Light Industry, Metrograph, MoMA and the Museum of the Moving Image.
