NEW YORK (AP) — On its 50th birthday, Film at Lincoln Center has a new name but an unchanging mission.

The uptown institution formerly known as the Film Society of Lincoln Center celebrated half a century as a "sanctuary of cinema" on Monday in a gala that brought out much of New York's cinephile community. Martin Scorsese, Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal and Dee Rees were among those who paid tribute to Film at Lincoln Center, which annually hosts the New York Film Festival and year-round serves as a standard bearer for film as an art form.

The nonprofit institution on Monday jettisoned the "society" part of its name, which it said "does not represent its evolution and growth." Film at Lincoln Center also revealed a new logo and summer season of free screenings
