The Toronto International Film Festival® today unveiled its second serving of titles premiering in the Gala and Special Presentations programmes in September. Six Galas and 32 Special Presentations have been added to the lineup of leading titles already announced. Audiences can look forward to innovative storytelling from some of the most prominent filmmakers and actors in Canada and around the world.

“We’re thrilled to bring Festival audiences some of the year’s most exciting films in our Gala and Special Presentations lineup,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of TIFF. “But beyond the sizzle of the premieres, this year’s selections show filmmakers continuing to take chances and push boundaries, whether they’re working in Hollywood or Hong Kong, Montreal or Munich.”

This second announcement brings the programme’s total to 48 World Premieres, 10 International Premieres, 19 North American Premieres and 10 Canadian Premieres.

The 42nd Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 7 to 17, 2017.
