The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced that the upcoming Steve Jobs film, starring Michael Fassbender, will screen as the centerpiece feature for the New York Film Festival on October 3. This screening will be just a few days before the film’s nationwide release on October 9. Interestingly enough, these dates are right around October 5, which this year will represent the fourth anniversary of the late Apple co-founder’s passing. However, according to many rumors, the October 3rd screening may not be the film’s premiere. It has been highly expected that the film could debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which will take place between September 10 and September 20 this year. So far no official announcement about a TIFF screening has been made. The Steve Jobs biopic is written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle. Alongside Michael Fassbender as the film’s namesake, the film will star Kate Winslet as Macintosh and NeXT team member Joanna Hoffman, Seth Rogan as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. As previously stated the film will open in theaters nationwide on October 9.
