2018 TIFF Announces Platform Films, Including ‘Destroyer’ and ‘Her Smell’

Destroyer Kidman

The 2018 Toronto Film Festival continues to add films to its lineup. The initial festival announcement brought dozens of world premieres to TIFF. Since then, two more announcements have added more than 30 additional films to the lineup. With NYFF also announcing some of their upcoming films, the festival picture is beginning to clear up. Now, TIFF has announced its Platform lineup featuring three very interesting additions. Among them are “Donnybrook,” “Her Smell” and the Nicole Kidman vehicle, “Destroyer.” Also of note with “Destroyer,” it is playing in the Platform section as an international premiere. That almost assuredly locks it in for a Telluride debut in early September. The remaining lineup is listed below.
