Apple has unveiled a lineup of five films set to premiere, as well as a conversation about the docuseries “Gutsy,” at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) taking place in Toronto, Canada from September 8-18.
Apple Original Films that will make their debut at TIFF include the recently announced “Causeway,” a new drama starring and produced by Jennifer Lawrence, co-starring Brian Tyree Henry and directed by Lila Neugebauer; director Peter Farrelly’s dramedy “The Greatest Beer Run Ever,” starring Zac Efron and Russell Crowe; the documentary “Sidney” about the late, great Sidney Poitier, directed by Reginald Hudlin and produced by Oprah Winfrey and Derik Murray; “Raymond & Ray,” from director Rodrigo Garcia, starring Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke; and “Louis Armstrong’s Black & Blues,” a documentary about the prolific musician and activist from director Sacha Jenkins and Imagine Documentaries. TIFF will spotlight the Apple TV+ docuseries “Gutsy” during the festival’s Industry Conference Visionaries program, featuring the show’s executive producers Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton as guest speakers.
“We’re thrilled to be debuting such a diverse spectrum of Apple Originals at this year’s festival,” said Apple’s head of features Matt Dentler. “From documentaries about icons to dramas from Academy Award-winning filmmakers and actors, TIFF audiences are in for a treat. We look forward to giving movie lovers from around the globe a first sneak peek in Toronto.”
