Appearing virtually as part of TIFF’s In Conversation With… series, French auteur Claire Denis and Oscar-winner Barry Jenkins will hold their own conversation for online audiences, as will Washington and director Barry Levinson.
Club Quarantine founder D-Nice and music video director Anthony Mandler will appear digitally as part of their own In Conversation With… session, while DuVernay will separately discuss her art and activism and four-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan will recall her movie career as part of the TIFF keynote series.
Toronto organizers on Monday said Halle Berry will appear virtually to discuss her feature directorial debut, Bruised, as part of the In Conversation With… series.
On Tuesday, TIFF added to its movie lineup Stacey Lee’s Underplayed, a documentary about radical female artists; Matthew Heineman’s The Boy from Medellín, a portrait of Columbian musician J Balvin; Selma star-turned-director David Oyelowo’s The Water Man; The Truffle Hunters, by directors Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw and set in the forests of Italy’s Peidmont region; and Wolfwalkers, an animated feature from Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart.
These and other TIFF titles this year will mostly screen digitally, or outdoors, as the festival said it no longer has access to the Isabel Baeder Theater and will only screen films in-person at Bell Lightbox on King Street.
Elsewhere, another four titles have been added to TIFF’s Planet Africa sidebar: Tommy Oliver’s 40 Years a Prisoner; Dawn Porter’s The Way I See It, a behind-the-scenes portrait of U.S. presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama; Charles Officer’s crime noir drama Akilla’s Escape; and Dieudo Hamadi’s Downstream to Kinshasa.
The Toronto Film Festival is set to run Sept. 10 to 19.
