Jim Jarmusch has always been a welcome presence here at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, his films having captivated audiences both at the New York Film Festival and around the globe. This week was no different. For the past nine days, we celebrated Jarmusch’s cinematic output with an 11-film retrospective, complete with short films and music videos that Jarmusch had a hand in creating. As an added special treat, Jarmusch appeared in person last night following a screening of his 1995 feature, Dead Man, for a discussion with Director of Programming Dennis Lim. Afterward, the renowned filmmaker introduced a screening of his 1986 Down by Law.

And although the retrospective ends tonight, Jarmusch fever will continue at the Film Society. Only Lovers Left Alive, the latest feature from Jarmusch, co-starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, and Jeffrey Wright, opens here tomorrow for a long-awaited theatrical run. The director will be on hand for both the 7pm and 10pm screenings tomorrow.

To get you in the mood for Only Lovers Left Alive's upcoming release, we're providing a few photos and some video footage from the film's New York premiere screeninings at the New York Film Festival last October.
