The 2022 TIFF lineup features new films from Tyler Perry, Peter Farrelly, Sam Mendes, Catherine Hardwicke, Martin McDonagh, Sarah Polley, Henry Selick, Stephen Frears and many more.

In all, 18 Galas and 45 Special Presentations were unveiled as part of the 47th Annual Toronto International Film Festival lineup, with 38 of the total films announced on Thursday slated to world premiere at the festival.

Among the Gala presentations are Farrelly’s “The Greatest Beer Run Ever,” his follow-up film after winning the audience prize at TIFF for “Green Book.” There’s also Tyler Perry’s “A Jazzman’s Blues,” Paul Weitz’s “Moving On” with Jane Fonda, and “Sidney” from Reginald Hudlin.

Those join previously announced titles such as “The Woman King” starring Viola Davis and the opening night film “The Swimmers” from Sally El Hosaini. Lee Jung-jae’s “Hunt,” which first premiered at Cannes, will also receive a Gala presentation, as will “The Son” from Florian Zeller, which will first bow at Venice.

As for Special Presentations, the Judi Dench film “Allelujah,” Edward Berger’s “All Quiet on the Western Front,” Stephen Williams’ “Chevalier” and Tobias Lindholm’s “The Good Nurse” will also make their world premieres. Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” will get a Canadian premiere, other North American premieres include the David Bowie documentary “Moonage Daydream,” Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” and Jafar Panahi’s “No Bears.” Among them are other buzzy titles out of Cannes and Sundance, and they join the previously announced “The Fabelmans,” “Bros,” “Glass Onion,” “My Policeman,” “On the Come Up” and more.

“We’re excited to welcome some of the most celebrated figures in movies back to Toronto to present their Gala and Special Presentation films,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF CEO. “With stories that span six continents and feature performances you just have to see, this lineup delivers the rich experiences we wait all year for. Cinema is alive. Red carpets are back. And the best audience in the world awaits them in Toronto.”

TIFF 2022 runs from September 8-18.
