The New York Film Festival main slate is out. We already knew about the opening, closing and centerpiece films. Among the others featured are Jim Jarmsuch’s “Paterson” and Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea.”

The list is good, but some of these films will have played at Cannes, Venice, Telluride and Toronto. There’s a scarcity of good festival films this year, that’s for sure. It doesn’t help that Warren Beatty isn’t showing “Rules Don’t Apply.”

BUT: There’s good money riding on Martin Scorsese showing “Silence” as the surprise screening. He did it a few years ago with “Hugo.” He told me he’s scoring in October, but Scorsese could use temp music if the picture is ready. That would be exciting.
