The New York Film Festival has announced which of this summer's most buzzed-about festival hits, and which of this autumn's most anticipated awards contenders, will fill out its 2015 slate. From the 25th of September (my birthday, natch) to the 1st of October, NYFF will feature titles from fest veterans Arnaud Desplechin, Hong Sang Soo and Michael Moore and new directors Thomas Bidegain and Don Cheadle.
