Among the 32 films are three special presentations that NYFF had already announced. The opening-night film will be Todd Haynes’ “May December,” its centerpiece screening will be Sofia Coppola’s “Priscilla” and its closing-night movie will be Michael Mann’s “Ferrari.”

The rest of the Main Slate lineup includes 12 films that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year, including the prize winners “Anatomy of a Fall” from Triet, “The Zone of Interest” from Glazer, “About Dry Grasses” from Ceylan, “Perfect Days” from Wenders and “Fallen Leaves” from Kaurismaki.  

Others films include “Do Not Expect Too Much From the End of the World” from director Radu Jude, “Evil Does Not Exist” from Hamaguchi, “Green Border” from Agnieszka Holland, and two films from Hong Sangsoo, “In Our Day” and “In Water.”

The festival will take place from Sept. 29 through Oct. 15 at Lincoln Center and other venues in New York City. Additional films in the Currents, Revivals, Spotlight and Talks sections will be announced in coming weeks.
