Handout

This year’s Toronto International Film Festival will look radically different than in years past, not just in the way films will be presented – at physically distanced indoor and outdoor venues – but also in the number of films premiering. Down from the hundreds of offerings from previous years, the more than 50 films making their debut at this year’s festival are being billed as the best of the best.

Below is a list of all the films premiering at this year’s TIFF, with links to the festival’s website where screening dates, times and tickets are available. Be sure to also check out our guide to how to make the most of your at-home viewing experience and our continuing coverage of the festival – including the films our critics can’t wait to see and their reviews of this year’s films.
