TIFF Released a Massive List of Titles Screening at This Year’s Festival

TIFF 2019 Announces Discovery, Midnight Madness, Documentary, and Cinematheque Lineups

This morning the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) announced a massive list of titles screening in this year’s Discovery, Midnight Madness, Documentary, and Cinematheque lineups. This is the third festival lineup announcement from TIFF in recent weeks. With less than a month to go before TIFF 2019 begins, today’s announcement means festivalgoers can finally start planning their schedule.

I’m particularly excited about the Midnight Madness lineup, which includes Joko Anwar’s Indonesian superhero adaptation Gundala. His last movie, Satan’s Slaves is one of the best horror movies you’ve never heard of. Think of it as the Indonesian version of The Conjuring. I’m down for whatever he churns out, and I’m willing to brave the Midnight Madness crowd to check out Gundala, which now sits near the top of my TIFF 2019 must-see list.
