New York et le cinéma

Ci-dessous un communiqué de l'office de tourisme de New York concernant les films tournés à New York. C'est en V.O. non sous-titré mais c'est une mine d'infos pour les cinéphiles ! :D


Lights, Camera, Action! Visit the set on the Streets of New York City

– With thousands of film and television productions, the Big Apple is Hollywood on the Hudson –

New York, NY (April 14, 2005) – From King Kong climbing the Empire State Building, to Carrie Bradshaw and the girls drinking cosmopolitans in Sex and the City, New York City’s icons are perpetually featured on the silver screen. Sweeping shots of the Manhattan skyline, scenes of the Brooklyn Bridge, and New York’s harbor as seen from the Staten Island Ferry are familiar sights in living rooms and movie theaters across the world. Shows like The Apprentice and Law & Order feature the city as an unspoken character, and films like Barefoot in the Park, Annie Hall, Big and Spider-Man pay homage to the vitality and legend of New York City. Even films that portray the city as a generic “Metropolis” convey the energy and excitement that make the Big Apple the greatest city in the world.

Live from New York!

In 2004 more than 90 television shows and hundreds of films shot on location in New York City. With its diverse neighborhoods, remarkable architecture, endless alleyways, and abundant resources, New York City is a real life set that has been home to thousands of television shows and films in the last century. From the early days of film, New York City has always been a top location for the film industry. The first projected motion pictures ever seen in the United States were shown in 1906 at Koster and Bial's vaudeville house, on the site of today's Macy's department store. Thomas Edison himself helped run the projector. America’s first movie studio opened in Brooklyn in 1903. Since then the studio has been owned by Warner Bros, NBC, was home to The Cosby Show and is still used as production center.

Over the past century, some of the world’s most popular television shows have been set in New York City, including Friends, Seinfeld, Will and Grace, The Cosby Show, Law & Order, Taxi, I Love Lucy, and the Jeffersons. The longest-running and highest-rated late night show in history is Saturday Night Live, which is broadcast live from NBC Studios in Rockefeller Center. One of the most memorable moments in silver screen history is from The Seven Year Itch when Marilyn Monroe fights to keep her skirt from blowing up as a subway car passes below. The scene was shot on the corner of 52nd Street and Lexington Avenue before a crowd of 1,500 onlookers. Other classic New York films include Miracle on 34th Street, An Affair to Remember, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, West Side Story, The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Ghostbusters, Working Girl, When Harry Met Sally, and numerous Woody Allen films including Manhattan, Annie Hall, New York Stories, Manhattan Murder Mystery and Bullets Over Broadway.

Today there are more than 40 studios and sound stages in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. The largest studio is Silvercup Studios located in Long Island City, Queens. The Sopranos and Johnny Zero are among the TV shows that shoot at Silvercup Studios; recent films that shot at the facilities include Gangs of New York, Analyze That, Mr. Deeds, Meet the Parents and Big Daddy.

The City of New York is actively encouraging film production in the Big Apple with the Made in NY Incentive Program. The program offers film and television productions a variety of opportunities that make it more attractive than ever to shoot in the five boroughs, featuring a combination of tax and marketing credits - along with expanded customer services for production. The program also includes a marketing component wherein film and television productions that complete 75% of their work in New York City can receive free advertisements valued at 1% of NYC production costs. The ads are co-branded with the “Made in NY” logo and appear bus shelters, NYC TV and 91.5 FM radio.

Seeing Stars

New York City’s population density makes running into others a common experience, and since the Big Apple celebrity count is as high as the skyscrapers, its not unusual to see celebrities on the street, in a local coffee shop or dining out. Walking past a location shoot is also not uncommon in New York City as there are more than 19,000 shooting days a year from film and television productions. Popular filming locations in the city include Central Park, SoHo and Times Square.

A number of celebrities call the Big Apple home and are frequently spotted throughout the city. SoHo, the West Village and other downtown neighborhoods are home to many popular celebrity hangouts including restaurants like Balthazar (212-965-1414,, Butter (212-253-2828,, and Gramercy Tavern (212-477-0777, Hotel bars at the Hotel Gansevoort (212-206-6700, www.hotelgansevoort), Mandarin Oriental (212-805-8800, and the Dream Hotel (212-247-2000, serve pricey cocktails to celebrities, models and other influential types. New York nightlife is renowned for its glitz, glamour and celebrity presence. Nightclubs frequented by A-listers include Marquee, Cain, Bungalow 8 and SoHo House. In addition to hanging in New York’s nightspots, many celebrities own a share of a bar, club or restaurant. Rapper Jay-Z owns 40/40, an upscale sports bar; Denzel Washington and Lenny Kravitz co-own Kos, a swank art-deco lounge; Robert De Niro owns the Mediterranean-influenced Tribeca Grill (212-941-3900, and co-owns the famed sushi restaurant Nobu (212-219-0500,; musician Moby owns Teany, a quirky lower east side teahouse; Rap mogul P. Diddy owns Justin’s, an upscale restaurant serving southern cuisine; and sports star Michael Jordan lends his name to Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse (212-608-7400, at Grand Central Terminal.

Film Festivals

New York City hosts nearly 40 film festivals each year, ranging from the well-known New York Film Festival, to the more obscure Dance on Camera Film Festival and the Bicycle Film Festival. The Tribeca Film Festival is a newcomer to New York’s film festival schedule, but has quickly become one of the premier festivals in the nation. Started in 2002 by New York native and oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro, the Tribeca Film Festival was founded to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking center and to contribute to the long-term recovery of Lower Manhattan after September 11.

The diversity of film festivals in New York is incomparable. Ethnic groups and nationalities host film festivals to celebrate filmmakers showcasing their culture, including the New York Jewish Film Festival, the African American Women in Cinema Film Festival, the New York Asian Film Festival, the Asian American International Film Festival, the New York Brazilian Film Festival, the Red Shift Festival, the Swiss American Film Festival, and the International Film Festival Summit.

Cutting edge filmmakers gravitate toward New York’s unique artistic community and forums. Festivals celebrating films about politics, social movements, artists, music, and activism include the New York Underground Film Festival, the GenArt Film Festival, the Howl! Film Festival, and the Eureka Film Festival.

Par le plus grand des hasards ça m'est arrivée une fois
j'étais en treillis et j'ai pas trouvé ca mortellement marrant je me demandais pourquoi il y avait tellement d'agitation autour de moi
surtout qu'après j'avais confié ce stupido évenement à une amie
qui s'est empressée de le raconter à la horde de chipies qu'est le groupe de mes copines et bien sûr elles n'ont été voir le film rien que pour voir cette chose hallucinée tout en kaki !
ça m'a poursuivit pendant un bon moment et j'ai trouvé ca franchement lourding :lol:
And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space !
