The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off this week, and with it, the next step of an-already very busy fall festival season. In preparation for the lauded festival, we’ve hand-picked 19 films we can’t wait to see, from the starriest of premieres to the most unexpected of offerings.
With festival season already in full swing, consider this a list with a firm nod to some of the films making their debut at TIFF, including contenders like “Just Mercy,” “The Goldfinch,” and “Jojo Rabbit.” The festival will, of course, feature some other top picks that have already bowed elsewhere, from “Joker” to “Marriage Story” and “Ford v Ferrari,” but for this selection, we’ve got TIFF world premieres on the brain.
This year’s TIFF runs September 5 – 15 in Toronto, Canada and will open with Daniel Roher’s documentary “Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band” and close with Marjane Satrapi’s “Radioactive,” with plenty of major picks running in between. Here’s what we’re most excited to see in Canada.
