TIFF 2019 Unveils Another Wave of Titles

TIFF 2019 Reveals More Gala, Special Presentations, Masters, World Cinema, and Wavelength Titles

Alright TIFF 2019, we get it. You’ve got like, all the movies.

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) continues adding films to what was already a diverse 2019 slate. This morning, TIFF released a press statement announcing more titles that will screen at this year’s festival.

Festivalgoers have several highly anticipated films to look forward to including Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s The Truth, and Olivier Assayas’ Wasp Network.

I haven’t had time to read up on every title announced so far, but my must-see list is already ballooning. Right now, I’m excited about Mati Diop’s Atlantics: A Ghost Love Story, Trey Edward Shults’ Waves, and Noah Hawley’s Lucy in the Sky.

This morning, TIFF Co-Heads Cameron Bailey and Joana Vicente kicked things off by adding two Galas and 16 Special Presentations to their fall lineup.

“We’re thrilled to announce this second wave of Galas and Special Presentations, which I believe are some of the most compelling in the lineup,” said Bailey, Artistic Director and Co-Head of TIFF. Audiences will be delighted by the artistry present in this year’s splashiest sections.”
