Toronto International Film Festival Sets 2020 Hybrid Lineup

Shortly after fellow prestige cinema convention Venice announced its lineup for the 2020 edition, Toronto Film Festival has revealed its full roster of projects set to premiere at its hybrid event, including Chloe Zhao’s upcoming adaptation of Nomadland starring Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri).

With the global pandemic still going on in the states and some parts of the world, the festival will be slimmed down in comparison to past outings and will focus mostly on Oscar fare rather than also including major blockbuster productions. In trying to follow in the footsteps of Venice Film Festival, the North American showcase of films at TIFF will feature 46 percent of films directed or co-directed by women in an effort for better gender parity compared to last year’s 36 percent.

TIFF will screen its films over the first five days with physical, socially-distanced exhibitions provided there are no spikes in the region, with indoor gathering sizes being allotted up to 50 people, but for members of the public and press who feel uncomfortable with going in-person, screenings and market business will still be taking place online.

TIFF has a proud history of programming award-winning films, expanding the conversation to include a multitude of voices, and in creating boundary-pushing initiatives for the industry,” Joana Vicente, Executive Director and Co-Head, TIFF, said in a statement on the official festival website. “And this year we’ve added new innovations and ways to give back to the community. In doing so, we’re aiming to advance what a film festival is capable of delivering — for audiences and the film industry. We could never have anticipated the global seismic changes we would be facing in 2020. We tapped into the original spirit of the Festival from when it began in 1976 as our guiding light. The distilled edition of TIFF 2020 reflects a deep love of film, passion for our loyal audiences, commitment to the industry, and a whole lot of heart.
