The 54th New York Film Festival is just around the corner! According to Architectural Digest, the event will feature films such as 13th, Ana DuVernay's searing exposé of the prison system, to Olivier Assayas's Personal Shopper, starring Kristen Stewart.

To know where is the best place to watch, stop, eat or maybe see you favorite celebrity in the duration of the festival from September 30 to October 16, Eugene Hernandez has shared some tips for you to maximize your experience.

Where to Watch

The Elinor Bunin Munroes Film Center

It opened five years ago, with interiors greatly designed by David Rockwell with collaboration with Diller Scofidio and Renfro on the exterior. It's a great place to watch a movie. In fact, even Woody Allen and his wife were here weeks ago, and the mayor, Bill de Blasio, goes with his wife as well.

Walter Reade Theater

Opened in 1991, this theater is dedicated in showcasing the best of international cinema year-round. Every night, filmmakers would often be in attendance.

Anthology Film Archive

This is certainly not a grand movie palace, but it's where experimental filmmakers gathered. Also, the Anthology have been collecting, preserving, and presenting experimental and independent cinema for a very long time. The vibe is definitely very downtown, very old East Village.

The Paris Theatre

Nestled among the tall buildings on 58th Street, the Paris Theatre books first-run films, and it's a gem of a small theater.

The Museum of Modern Art

MoMA is an amazing place to watch a movie because it has three great cinemas. It is also famous for big exhibitions like what they in last 2010 for their Tim Burton exhibition.

Where to Eat

Indie Food and Wine

This place has become a kind of gathering place for creative people and is perfect for something small, quick, and casual. Frances McDormand, her husband, Joel Coen, and his brother, Ethan go here frequently. Ethan Hawke also goes here. Composers from the Metropolitan Opera, dancers from Juilliard, and the kids from the School of American Ballet regularly go to this place.

Where to Shop

The Strand

This has a great film, theater, and arts section. Old film books can also be found in this independent bookstore.

Posteritati
According to Hernandez, this is probably the best movie poster shop in the city. It's indeed a fun place to check out and perfect for buying gifts with totally affordable prices.

Where to Drink

Vanguard
This is a wine bar and café near Lincoln Center. It's French-themed on the inside, and they have numerous cinema paraphernalia along with French paraphernalia.

Where to Lounge

Lincoln Center's Green Roof

It's a great place to people watch, and all different types of people connect here. It is situated high enough that you can observe the city around you.
