It’s that time of year again. It’s time to roll out the red carpet on the annual Toronto International Film Festival.
And this year marks the 40th anniversary of the event, which has grown in popularity.
399 films from 71 countries will be screened at the event.
A Canadian film will open the event, Jean-Marc Vallee’s Demolition, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts. It’s a story about an investment banker who loses his wife, and then attempts to rebuild his life.
There’s also a lot of buzz surrounding Black Mass, which stars Johnny Depp as James “Whitey” Bulger, who pursues a life of crime in Boston in the 70s.
Some of the stars confirmed to attend this year include Bryan Cranston, Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, Julianne Moore and Kate Winslet.
The curtain falls on TIFF on September 20.
