TIFF Unveils Canadian Line-Up


Kay, Jeremy, Screen International


Denis Villeneuve will have two films in the festival as it emerged on Wednesday [7] that Canadian Features world premiere Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a man and his doppelganger [pictured] has joined the previously announced Prisoners, also starring Gyllenhaal.

The Canadian Features selection includes Michael Dowse's Goon follow-up The F Word, Xavier Dolan's Tom At The Farm and Chloe Robichaud's Sarah Prefers To Run as well as work from Jeff Barnaby, Bruce McDonald and Bruce LaBruce. Also receiving its world premiere is All The Wrong Reasons featuring the final performance by the late Glee star Cory Monteith.

Festival organisers also unveiled Producers Lab Toronto participants and Telefilm Canada PITCH THIS! finallists, the shorts programme and participants in the tenth TIFF Talent Lab.

"The scope of this year's feature films is as broad as Canada's filmmaking community and demonstrates the deep versatility of our filmmakers," said TIFF senior programmer Steve Gravestock. "From clever, biting satire to intimate social commentary, powerful dramas and even a truly magical comedy, the settings and themes vary, but the perspectives are always uniquely Canadian."

The City Of Toronto and Canada Goose Award for Best Canadian Feature Film will be given to one of many outstanding Canadian filmmakers, with the award for Best Canadian First Feature Film being presented to the breakout Canadian filmmaker with the most impressive debut feature at the festival.
