The New Yorker announced this week that there is still time to get tickets to the 15th annual New Yorker Festival that will be held Friday, October 10 - Sunday, October 12. Authors, actors, activists, playwrights, muscicians and commentators will all appear for interviews, panels and signings. The box office will sell the remaining tickets to all events throughout the festival weekend.The slate of speakers represents The New Yorker's iconic cultural digest of literature, entertainment, politics and commentary focused through a monocle that doesn't perch too high on the brow to examine the mainstream, popular, or even zeitgeist-y. Notable speakers cover the spectrum from GIRLS creator Lena Dunham (Friday, 10 PM, Acura at SIR Stage37 at 508 West 37th Street) and Outliers author Malcom Gladwell (Saturday, 10 AM, MasterCard® Stage at SVA Theatre 1 on 333 West 23rd Street) to Beijing-based artist and political activist Ai Weiwei (Saturday, 10 AM, MasterCard Stage at SVA® Theatre 2).
Sting gives a premiere performance of his Broadway show The Last Ship on Saturday afternoon followed by a panel talk (2 PM, Neil Simon Theatre, West 52nd Street). Director and screenwriter David O. Russel appears at The Directors Guild Theatre (110 West 57th Street) at 7 PM on Saturday to discuss his films, the last three of which — American Hustle (2013), Silver Linings Playbook (2012), and The Fighter (2010) — have twenty-five Academy Award nominations between them.
Book signings will be held on Saturday and Sunday from 12 - 4 PM at Mcnally Jackson Books on 52 Prince Street.
Tickets can be purchased in two ways: at the MasterCard® Stage at SVA Theatre box office, or at the door to the events one hour before start time (exceptions here). Either way, ticket purchases are cash-only and on a first-come, first-served basis. The free New Yorker Festival app, available from iTunes and Google Play, will send mobile alerts if tickets to sold-out events become available.

As the world gets smaller and smaller, we tend to forget about the power of gathering like minds in one place. Here at Film Festival Traveler we embrace the idea of the festival as a communicative and all-encompassing experience. Whether it’s an art-house theater showing Pasolini films or an international music summit, festivals bring together great artistic minds and let the public join in the experience. But putting together a film fest or a huge multi-act concert is not the easiest task, so to help learn how to better manage these experiences are the International Film Festival Summit and the International Music Festival Conference. Both are happening December 8 – 10, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Austin.
IMFCON includes panel discussions on how to better improve safety at concerts, keynotes by the President of Global Touring and Chairman of Global Music at Live Nation, Arthur Fogel and boxing manager Shelly Finkel, a at in-house ticketing vs. giant ticket companies, how to book talent, the difference between managing a festival versus a tour, and much more.
The IFFS investigates how to utilize digital distribution for film, how the acclaimed Toronto International Film Festival selects its programming, a conversation with acclaimed writer John Sayles and Associate Dean of Entrepreneurship and Special Initiatives for the School of Theater, Film and Television at UCLA, Barbara Boyle, and how to effectively utilize sponsors.
Both events are must-sees for anyone looking to break into the festival industry and provide valuable expertise.

Few things in this world make life bearable the way chocolate does. From the kind that melt in your mouth but not in your hand, to the most decadent artisanal desserts, there’s nothing quite like chocolate to make this mortal plane tolerable. The Salon du Chocolat will be celebrating all things chocolate at the Javits Center from November 16th to the 17th.
At the Chocolate Demonstration Stage you’ll be able to see expert chocolatiers practice their craft and answer your questions. The Pastry by the Pros Stage is there to teach you recipes for the holiday season. Salon du Chocolat NY’s signature fashion show presents pageantry dripping with glamour, decadence, and otherworldly couture… and chocolate with chocolate themed outfits. Marvel at colossal chocolate sculptures that take the shape of endangered species and world landmarks. The Valrhona Hot Chocolate Festival will feature samples of unique hot chocolate recipes created especially by the city's most celebrated pastry chefs and the Salon du Chocolat Junior is a chance for kids to get hands on lessons in chocolate crafting.
