The Toronto International Film Festival has announced a return to a more traditional festival with over 100 films in its Official Selection to be shown over ten days starting September 9th.
The full list won’t be revealed until this Summer, but a dozen titles were announced and confirmed today including the IMAX premiere of Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” along with Edgar Wright’s thriller “Last Night in Soho”.
Other confirmed titles are Celine Sciamma’s “Petite Maman,” Kenneth Branagh’s “Belfast,” Terence Davies’ “Benediction,” Antoine Fuqua’s “The Guilty,” Philip Noyce’s “Lakewood,” Ted Melfi’s “The Starling,” Danis Goule’s “Night Raiders,” Melanie Laurent’s “Le Bal des Folles,” Eric Warin and Tahir Rana’s “Charlotte” and documentaries on Dionne Warwick and Alanis Morissette.
All films have been invited to premiere both in-person and virtually for Canadian audiences, though quite a few are opting not to go virtual, while a press and industry screening platform launched last year will remain in place.
At present, the Canadian border remains closed to U.S. travellers, but the hope is that will change come September.
