List of movies in TIFF – Deadline

The Toronto International Film Festival is back this year.

Seriously, they’re really back.

Unlike last year, which was a fairly quiet festival with fewer stars and feature films at 130 count, this year TIFF celebrates King Street (without streetcars), full capacity maskless theatres, no evidence of vaccinations, live press Will see it closed. A strong span of conventions, concession retreats and orange shirt volunteers, as well as 260 feature films, today the festival announced 18 gala and 45 special presentations.

In the domestic box office fall and the holiday aisle that’s filled with adult counterprogramming primed for awards season, distributors are now more likely than ever to generate buzz and stock up on older moviegoers. More TIFF launches are needed, which are still making a slow comeback. during the pandemic. TIFF’s critically acclaimed film could inspire a film to cross over to a wider audience, read 2019 TIFF World Premiere hustler Which became Jennifer Lopez’s highest-grossing live-action film with $105M, and even its 2018 North American premiere. a star is born Which saw its way to $215M-plus stateside gross, eight Oscar nominations, and one win.

“There are films that will launch on the heels of the festival, I hope adult audiences will catch on and revive the movie-watching habit. Thankfully summer is done with blockbusters. There is a different kind of film that will hit the screens in the fall and we are looking forward to getting the audience to go and watch them,” says TIFF CEO Cameron Bailey,

Out of nine previously announced world premieres, including the opening night Netflix movie swimmer From Sally L. Hosseini, Rian Johnson’s Netflix Title Glass Onion: Knives Out The SecretBilly Eichner’s BrothersClement Virgo brother, Sana Lathan on coming upharry styles amazon prime photo my cops, Viola Davis Starrer lady king, Autobiography of Steven Spielberg fabelman, and Lena Dunham Katherine is called Birdie, The works of Martin McDonagh are (Inisherin. the banshee), Sam Mendes (kingdom of light), Tyler Perry (a jazzman’s blues), Catherine Hardwicke (prisoner’s daughter), Darren Aronofsky whale A greatly adapted, and by and large, one starring Brendan Fraser; Peter Farrelly (The Greatest Bear Run Ever) Reginald Hudlin (Sydney Pointier documentary) Sydney), among many others.

Last year, films competing for the highly coveted Oscar Belvedere TIFF award, the Grolash People’s Choice Award, were required to be screened at the festival in person and online, however, this year those rules have changed as Bailey says, “We are a fully-person festival”.

With regard to the hybrid nature of this year’s 47th edition, “we will have only a small sample of the films available in Canada to watch online at home. The festival is taking place in person, in cinemas, and that’s where we all see.” want,” Bailey says.

“We are excited to welcome some of the most celebrated personalities in films to Toronto to present their gala and special presentation films,” he adds. “With stories and feature performances spanning six continents you just have to watch, this lineup delivers the rich experience we look forward to all year long. Cinema is alive. The red carpets are back. And the world’s best audiences are in Toronto.” are waiting.”

Usually Spielberg’s awards season entries are wired even before their release (remember 2005’s Munich?), but here’s the 3x Oscar winner whose November release is roaring to go to TIFF. Not to mention, filmmakers don’t always world premiere their films at festivals; ready player one Being the ultimate title in SXSW. Talking about how TIFF saw the filmmaker’s debut at the festival, Bailey explained, “We are a longtime partner with Universal Pictures. We chat with them about what they’re up to in the fall, it was definitely high on our list and on their list as well.

“When we saw the film, we reacted in a strong emotional way. I sent a note, which was sent to Steven, about our own reaction to the film, how impressed we were with it, the movies and the movies. How a beautiful love letter,” he continues.

“Toronto is a place where audiences are paramount. Audiences define the shape of the festival, the movies that everyone is talking about and go on to further notice and elsewhere,” Bailey said. “The emotional reaction we had when we saw it would be magnified when our audience saw it; that embrace would be stronger and more furious than anywhere else.”

Talk about a celebration that seems to be getting louder a year after Hollywood was reluctant to venture across the reopened Canadian border, mega-performing artist Styles is reportedly in for the world premiere of his Love Triangle film. Will be in Toronto for my cop, However, Curiously not receiving a North American premiere after its Venice Film Festival world premiere is the Olivia Wilde-directed erotic drama starring Styles. Don’t worry darling. Sources told Deadline that a situation should not be created at TIFF where a star like Styles has two competing projects pulling up on his profile. Bailey says why don’t worry darling TIFF has MIA, “Great question, not the one for me, this one for Warner Bros.” In relation to Styles’ other titles at the fest, “If you’re looking for fangs, you’ll want to see my cop,

With the return of in-person festivals to lively, Bailey says drive-in premieres, which were implemented during the pandemic, will no longer take place.

“We had two years with the drive-in and it was an exciting new thing for us, but there are all kinds of new complications of showing movies to people sitting in their cars, as you can imagine, but its For the moment, we’re done,” Bailey says.

Before the pandemic forced TIFF to go hybrid over the past two years, attendance in 2019 jumped to 307,362 reported for its last in-person event. Bailey feels excited that with the increased offerings this year, the audience will indeed return to the festival.

“We are expecting full houses. We know from the ticket packages we’ve been going through for the past few weeks, some of them are already out of sale, but there’s still plenty available. For what we have seen so far, there is enough appetite that we are expecting a bigger audience. ,
