White Noise by Noah Baumbach will open the 2022 New York Film Festival.

It's time for the New York Film Festival to weigh in, and they have, with the Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals having released its main lineups

And Telluride keeping its lineup a secret until just before opening day on Labor Day weekend.

The 60th New York Feature Festival's opening night film will be Noah Baumbach's "White Noise,

which will have its North American premiere at Alice Tully Hall on September 30. This was confirmed by Film at Lincoln Center today.

"White Noise," one of the most eagerly awaited movies of the year, is based on the seminal postmodern 1985 novel by Don DeLillo 

And stars Adam Driver (Baumbach's "Marriage Story") and Greta Gerwig (Baumbach's "Francis Ha" and "Mistress America").

Baumbach has produced what Film Linc calls a "ambitious, contemporary satire," which has long been regarded as being unfilmable.

Here is the "White Noise" blurb from NYFF, a Netflix release; suffice it to say that it makes numerous references to a pandemic, as well as the existential sadness and dark humour that come with disaster.

Alongside Don Cheadle and Raffey Cassidy from "No Sudden Move," "White Noise" also stars André Benjamin from "High Life,"

Alessandro Nivola from "The Saints of Newark," Jodie Turner-Smith from "After Yang," and Raffey Cassidy from "Vox Lux."

The movie "White Noise" will have its North American premiere at the NYFF, but it will initially screen at the Venice Film Festival in late August or early September.

In addition to occasionally holding secret screenings, the NYFF typically announces two additional prominent positions in its lineup
