The Toronto International Film Festival usually dominates fall movie news but the New York Film Festival is right around the corner too, and they are looking for volunteers.
NYFF will kick off with the world premiere of Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks as the captain who gave himself up to Somali pirates in exchange for the safety of his crew, and Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which was shot in NYC last year.
Keith Urban took a break from his new duties as American Idol host this morning to escort his two daughters to Nice, France, where their mom, Nicole Kidman, is playing Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco.
Despite the long flight from L.A., Sunday Rose and Grace Margaret looked bright-eyed walking through the Nice airport with their dad.
The whole family will be back in New York City Wednesday, when Nicole will be honored by the New York Film Festival. The event, which will be held at Alice Tully Hall, will include an on stage conversation with Kidman and a screening of her upcoming movie, The Paperboy.

This year's New York Film Festival main slate features 27 films including George Clooney's The Descendants and My Week With Marilyn, which stars Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe. Guess what? You can be part of the festival, if you're available later this month.
NYFF is currently looking for volunteers to do various jobs during the festival which runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 16 in New York City. Available positions include Red Carpet Volunteers who will escort talent prior to premieres, Still Photographers who will cover various events, and Special Events Assistants who will help out with galas and dinners.
You can apply to be a volunteer by registering at FilmLinc.com and filling out an online application.
NYFF will also host a Volunteer Orientation Meeting on Wednesday, September 7, from 10 to 11:30am at the Furman Gallery, 165 W. 65th St in New York City. The meeting is open to the public and will provide more information about open positions and how to become a volunteer.
