TIFF Announces Another 115 Films, Including “22 July,” “Mid90s,” and “Boy Erased”

0

Earlier today, we received the opening and closing films for TIFF 2018. Now, we’ve received an additional 100 films to screen at the festival. There are some notable films to discuss, so let’s quickly touch on those.

First up, “Green Book,” which also released a trailer today, will make its World Premiere at TIFF in a Gala setting. The Gala designation means that it is playing at one of the marquee theaters of the event, so it doesn’t necessarily signal strong quality. However, one has to expect they wouldn’t put it at one of the bigger venues if the movie wasn’t worth the extra space.

Second, “22 July,” “Boy Erased,” “Driven,” and “Mid90s” all have Special presentation slots. “Driven” will premiere at Venice and tells the story of John DeLorean’s downfall. “22 July” will also make its premiere at Venice, beginning its North American run here at Toronto. There has been considerable discussion about “Boy Erased,” and now it’s officially festival bound. It appears it will premiere at Telluride first, as it received International Premiere status. “Mid90s” will make its World Premiere at Toronto, taking it out of Telluride consideration.
