Toronto International Film Festival unveils 2020 line-up

July 30, 2020

The Toronto International Film Festival has unveiled a line-up including the directorial debut of Regina King and the latest documentaries from Frederick Wiseman and Werner Herzog.

The festival, which is set to run from September 10-19, has plotted a largely virtual 45th edition due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In normal years, the event is the largest film festival in North America. 

This year, it has drastically scaled down its plans and scrapped 50 films or TV series from around the world, leaning on projects set to debut on streaming services or television this autumn.

Toronto will also showcase new work from Mira Nair, Thomas Vinterberg and Michel Franco.
