“Some of the year’s biggest films will land in Toronto this September,” TIFF Co-Head and Artistic Director Cameron Bailey explains. “We’re thrilled to unveil Galas and Special Presentations that bring the brightest lights in film to our Festival audience. Our new programming team has been hard at work for months to deliver the compelling stories, acclaimed filmmakers, and top onscreen talent that mark our two highest-profile sections.”
