The Toronto International Film Festival is about to enter its 40th year, and judging by previous years, there’s sure to be an Oscar contender or two in the lineup. Award winners like American Beauty, Silver Linings Playbook, The Wrestler, Dallas Buyers Club, and Argo have had their world and/or North American premieres at TIFF in the past, so this year should be no different. If star sightings are your thing, you can expect to see celebs like Jake Gyllenhaal, Julianne Moore, Benedict Cumberbatch (for the third year in a row) walking the red carpet.
This year’s festival runs from September 10th - 20th, and tickets go on sale to the public on September 6th. If the list of films to choose from is a little overwhelming, here’s a quick list of 10 films that won’t disappoint.
