News: Toronto International Film Festival 2017 Announcements: Gala and Special Presentation: Complete List


It’s that time when you know Toronto’s most amazing and star studded event happens, when you find yourself sitting at TIFF Bell Light Box, anxiously awaiting for the press conference to begin to announce TIFF’s most anticipated titles to be screened as part of its film festival. Already having a few titles in my mind, I knew some of them I could expect to hear and why now. Guillermo del Toro`s The Shape of Water, Disobedience, Call Me By Your Name and many more. But the complete list that you find below was beyond my imagination, and hopefully yours as well. Because if not them, what else can put the start to the most amazing time of this Fall?

Below you can find the complete list of TIFF’s first announcement with Gala and Special Presentations. In case you don’t find the title you expected, don’t be upset. TIFF is yet to come up with more movies, that I hope, can satisfy everyone’s expectation.

The 42nd Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 7 to 17, 2017.

About Ulkar Alakbarova (1027 Articles)
My name is Ulkar Alakbarova. A wonderful name, is it not? I come from the exotic land of Azerbaijan but now I live in the hub of Hollywood North – Toronto, Canada. How lucky I am to be able to enjoy and indulge in my favourite avocation of watching movies. Movies of every genre are screened here in Toronto. There are black and white classics, avant garde, independently produced, and of course, newly released movies for all to enjoy. Let me share this treasure of entertainment with you. Read my thoughts and opinions then let me know if you agree.
