New York: Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., 1973. Quarto, publisher's illustrated stapled stiff paper wraps.

Program for the prestigious 11th New York Film Festival (NYFF) featuring a vibrant cover illustration by French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Films screened include Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets, François Truffaut’s La Nuit Américaine, James Frawley’s Kid Blue, Werner Herzog’s Land des Schweigens und der Dunkelheit, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rubel, Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, and Terrence Malick’s Bandlands, among many others. Each film includes showtimes, a list of cast and crew, a brief synopsis, and a black-and-white still. Other features include a travel review of Jamaica, a profile on fashion designer Adolfo Sardina, and a dining guide. Richard Roud and Amos Vogel founded the NYFF in 1963 as a feature of Lincoln Center’s brand new film department, with the support of president William Schuman, with the goal of highlighting cinema never previously shown in New York. The non-competitive festival has since grown into one of the longest-running and most respected film festivals in the country. Each year an artist is asked to contribute their work for the festival, including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, Saul Bass, Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, John Waters, and recently Kara Walker.
