NEW YORK (AP) — Clint Eastwood may be 82 years old, but he dreams of making films for two more decades.

In a wide-ranging interview Saturday about film directing at the Tribeca Film Festival, Eastwood said he admires the 104-year-old Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira.

Eastwood says, "It would be great to be 105 and still making films." He laughs and calls such a hope "the ultimate optimism."

The "Million Dollar Baby" and "Unforgiven" director joined fellow filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for a staged conversation at the New York film festival following a screening of Richard Schickel's documentary "Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story."
