Film at Lincoln Center, previously known as the Film Society of Lincoln Center (until April 29, 2019),[1] is a film presentation organization based in New York City, United States. Founded in 1969 by three Lincoln Center executives—William F. May, Martin E. Segal and Schuyler G. Chapin[2]—the film society spotlights American independent cinema and world cinema, and recognizes and supports new filmmakers.[3] The Film Society of Lincoln Center is one of the eleven resident organizations at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Over the last four decades, the film society has introduced to American audiences the works of many of the world's most acclaimed filmmakers, including François Truffaut, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar and Martin Scorsese.

Each year the organization presents its annual Gala Tribute, honoring legendary stars and industry leaders at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall, formerly known as Avery Fisher Hall.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center also hosts the annual New York Film Festival and is a co-presenter (with the Museum of Modern Art) of the New Directors/New Films Festival. The Film Society also publishes the bi-monthly film journal Film Comment.
