Making it to the Toronto International Film Festival is a big deal for filmmakers at any stage in their careers. The annual Canadian festival features everything from smaller films by up-and-coming filmmakers to potential blockbusters from some of the biggest names in the industry.

The selections for the 2022 festival, which runs from September 8th to 18th, reflect some of the best and most creative minds in filmmaking today. TIFF 2022 has divided its presentations into a few different categories. The main categories are the gala presentations and the special presentations, where some of the most anticipated films of the festival will make their debut.

The 2022 Gala cast includes The Woman King, starring Viola Davis and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, and Tyler Perry’s latest film, A Jazzman’s Blues. Special Presentations, meanwhile, include lively films like My Policeman, starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrin; the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery; and Steven Spielberg’s latest film, The Fabelmans.

In addition to these big-name presentations, TIFF has also made room for more offbeat fare in the Discovery, Midnight Madness, and Wavelengths categories. The Wavelengths selection is for fans of niche art films, while Midnight Madness offers the extra bizarre. For example, this year Daniel Radcliffe’s biopic starring Weird Al Yankovic will highlight the Midnight Madness section. Discovery, on the other hand, is exactly what it sounds like: a showcase designed to showcase promising up-and-coming directors.
