Tailored to fit the moment, this year's 45th Toronto International Film Festival presents itself as a hybrid event offering both virtual and on screen experiences to bring the best in film to the broadest possible audience.
Included is Francis Lee’s 1800’s set British drama 'Ammonite' starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan featuring the music of the German composer Volker Bertelmann aka Hauschka. Originally set to be premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, the TIFF screening will be its global and North American premiere. Oscar winner Kate Winslet will be honoured with this year's TIFF Tribute Award.
Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer will premiere their latest documentary 'Fireball: Visitors from Darker Worlds.' Also screening are Iranian-German coproduction 'Bandar Band' by Manijeh Hekmat, 'Lift Like a Girl' by Mayye Zayed (Egypt/Germany/Denmark), 'Notturno' by Gianfranco Rosi (Italy/France/Germany), and 'Quo Vadis, Aïda?' by Jasmila Žbanić (Bosnia and Herzegovina/Norway/The Netherlands/Austria/Romania/France/Germany/Poland/Turkey)
