The PBS documentary about Hamilton will soon be making its world premiere… in the greatest city in the world.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced its special events for this year’s New York Film Festival, ranging from the world premiere of Ang Lee’s new film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk to a screening of Terence Davies’ Emily Dickinson biopic A Quiet Passion.

The PBS doc Hamilton’s America will also make its world premiere at the festival, with special guests that have yet to be revealed. Directed by Alex Horwitz, Hamilton’s America chronicles the making of the smash Broadway musical, starting with creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first performance of a Hamilton song at the White House in 2009. The documentary is set to premiere on PBS at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, Oct. 21.

This year’s NYFF runs Sept. 30 through Oct. 16. For more on the NYFF’s special events slate, head to the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s website. See the full film lineup for this year’s NYFF here.
