As we near closer to one of the film industry’s biggest events, the full lineup for the Toronto International Film Festival 2019 has been revealed. Set to kick off in September, the packed schedule will include big-name Hollywood titles and independent gems as A-listers of the industry descend upon the Canadian city.

Across 10 days, the lineup will see fan-favourite premieres and more gritty indie films as TIFF celebrates some of the best films in 2019. Considered a global platform for award-winning projects, the event will also serve as a taster into what may appear on the nominee lists during awards season.
