Sunday marked the end of the 17-day run of cinema highlights, better known as the New York Film Festival. The 53rd annual festival began September 25 and wrapped up Sunday with the world premiere of Miles Ahead. The NYFF not only highlights the best in international cinema, but it features top productions from some of the world’s most decorated filmmakers as well as acknowledges new talent. This year’s selection committee was chaired by Kent Jones and included Dennis Lim, Marian Masone, Gavin Smith and Amy Taubin.

The Miles Ahead world premiere put a big exclamation point on the 2015 NYFF. Shown on Saturday in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, the film took viewers on a biographical and dramatic exploration of Miles Davis‘s life and music. Don Cheadle, Ewan McGregor, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Michael Stuhlbarg and Keith Stanfield were among the cast members and guests present.

Also closing out the NYFF on Friday evening at Alice Tully Hall was a screening of Carol. The film is set in New York during the 1950s featuring a clerk in a department store who dreams of a bigger and better life then falls for an older, married woman. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara co-star in this romantic drama. Among those at the showing were Sandra Bernhard, Carter Burwell, Corey Michael Smith, Todd Haynes and Phyllis Nagy.
