Telluride has wrapped, Venice is heading towards its close and now the fall festival season spotlight moves towards Toronto. Known as “the people’s festival” for its accessibility of its robust programming slate to the public at large, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is a cinema lover’s dream. It’s one of the few events with something for everyone, whether you want to see the star-studded premiere of a predestined awards darling, check out the latest work by a renowned international master filmmaker, discover an emerging voice in world cinema or explore projects that push the boundaries of the form.
/Film will be in attendance at TIFF reporting back on the good, the bad and the sublime movies we see. But for those who aren’t heading north of the border for the festival, you can curate an equally impressive slate of films at home to prepare yourself for the eventual release of these festival titles. Here are 10 films we’re getting excited to see in Toronto and what you can watch from the comfort of your couch in order to have a more informed frame of reference when the public conversation centers around these movies.
