Tar, starring Cate Blanchett, and the Paul Schrader-directed Master Gardner help headline the 2022 festival's 32-film main slate, which was unveiled Tuesday by the Film at Lincoln Center organization.

Organizers had already announced several of this year’s selections, including Armageddon Time, a Queens-set drama depicting a pursuit of the American dream that’s directed by New York native James Gray. Anne Hathaway and Anthony Hopkins star in the drama, which serves as the festival's selection for its 60th anniversary celebration.

White Noise, a black-comedy horror directed by New Yorker Noah Baumbach, will open the festival on September 30. The movie marks a reunion for Baumbach and star Adam Driver, who previously collaborated on the Academy Award-nominated Marriage Story.

This year's centerpiece selection is Laura Poitras' All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, a documentary about the photographer Nan Goldin, while Elegance Bratton's The Inspection, a drama about a gay man's experiences in the Marine Corps, will close the festival on October 16.

The festival will also feature director Joanna Hogg's latest collaboration with actress Tilda Swinton with the mystery September 30. Their previous film together, The Souvenir Part II, played at last year’s festival.

New York Film Festival will show films across the five boroughs, including at its primary home at Lincoln Center, with masks required for indoor screenings. The films included in the main slate were produced in 18 different countries, organizers said.
