Director Richard Linklater and 'Dazed' cast members will appear for the anniversary screening

The New York Film Festival has lined up a 20th anniversary screening of Richard Linklater’s “Dazed and Confused” — with the helmer and cast members appearing at the event — and will also launch a three-week retrospective of Jean-Luc Godard’s works, the first week of which will run concurrently with the second week of NYFF’s 17-day run.

The screening of slacker comedy “Dazed and Confused” follows the same model as the 2012 NYFF tribute to “The Princess Bride,” which gathered original creatives including Cary Elwes, Robin Wright and Billy Crystal for the pic’s 25th anniversary. The talent lineup for the “Dazed and Confused” event has not yet been locked, but the 1993 film had a cast that included Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich and Parker Posey, among others.

Meanwhile, the retrospective of French cinema giant Godard, which kicks off Oct. 9, will include pics “Alphaville,” “For Ever Mozart,” “Hail Mary” and “Weekend,” with further titles for the rest of the three-week programming slate still to be announced.

Both “Dazed” and the Godard series join a lineup of 2013 NYFF sidebar programming that includes a trio of documentary sections and a restoration slate, which will play during the festival alongside the 36-film main slate. The 2013 fest runs Sept. 27-Oct 13.
