Tickets to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) are always hard to come by, and this year will be no exception. TIFF announced most of the line-up recently, including world premieres by many of the entertainment world’s elite, such as Chris Rock, Noah Baumbach, Chris Evans and Jason Reitman.
The films that have been announced will be screened during the first four days of the festival, from Thursday to Sunday, September 4th through the 7th. Media attention is most intense at the Toronto International Film Festival during that period, and films scheduled for release in the upcoming award season can succeed or fail due to word of mouth, and, of course, the critics.
Notably absent from the list are two of this year’s most eagerly anticipated films by Brad Pitt and his stable mate Angelina Jolie. Both are period pieces set in World War II. Pitt’s film is called “Fury.” Jolie’s is named “Unbroken.”
