Calling all movie-loving Canadians! Your time is again nigh. After last year’s event was lightly derailed owing to the strikes, the Toronto International Film Festival is back and scheduled to run from September 5 through 15. This year’s fest will honor two Canadians, plus one worthy American who seems appropriately nice. On the northern side, Canadian director David Cronenberg will receive the Norman Jewison Career Achievement Award, per a press release, and Korean Canadian actress Sandra Oh will be the inaugural Tribute Awards Honorary Chair. In the American category, Amy Adams will receive the TIFF Tribute Performer Award for her work on Nightbitch, which will also premiere at the festival. “Returning to TIFF feels like coming home and I’m excited to serve as Honorary Chair for this year’s Tribute Awards,” Oh said in a press release. Below, find all the films scheduled to play the festival thus far.
