Labor Day Weekend marks the end of many things -- wearing white pants, daylight savings time and excuses to cut out of work early on Friday afternoons.
But let's not mourn what we can't control. Besides, there are things to look forward to like colorful fall foliage, lower electric bills as cooler weather rolls in and Halloween!
One more thing to look forward to this fall is The 48th New York Film Festival hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
The 17-day festival showcases films from around the world, special events and dialogues with directors. Opening night will feature the much-anticipated Facebook flick The Social Network. Other films debuting include The Tempest, starring the amazing Helen Mirren (see photo), and LENNONYC, which offers a glimpse at rare footage from John Lennon's life.
Tickets go on sale online on September 12. NYFF takes place Sept. 24-Oct. 10 at assorted Lincoln Center venues.
