The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Announces Five More World Premieres For The 2024 Lineup

The Toronto International Film Festival, renowned for bringing global cinema to Toronto’s local and international public audiences, is announcing five more exciting World Premiere titles from the Gala programming, sponsored by Dyson, and the Special Presentation programming. The previous six world premieres were announced a few days ago here.

Today’s films are from internationally acclaimed filmmakers and feature stories from Canada, France, India, the United Kingdom, and the USA: “Eden” is a survival thriller based on true events about the lengths we will go to in pursuit of a better life, directed by Ron Howard, written by Halifax-born Noah Pink and starring Jude Law, Ana de Armas and Sydney Sweeney; “K-POPS,” a dramatic comedy that takes inspiration from eight-time Grammy Award winner Anderson .Paak’s own life, bridging family lineages and cultures; “Shepherds,” an adaptation of the Canadian novel D’où viens tu, berger?, which follows a young advertising executive who trades in his Montreal life to become a shepherd in France; “Superboys of Malegaon,” a film based on the life of Nasir Shaikh, an amateur filmmaker from the town of Malegaon, India, and what happens when filmmaking and friendships collide; and “We Live in Time,” a highly anticipated romance starring Florence Pugh and Andrew Garfield as a couple whose chance encounter changes their lives as they fall in love, build a home, start a family, and face difficult truths.

“I’m thrilled to share today’s list of World Premiere films, featuring stories from around the world that highlight the scope and breadth of TIFF’s programming,” said Anita Lee, Chief Programming Officer, TIFF. “We have a Canada/France co-production set in the French Alps, directed by a French Canadian auteur; a Seoul-set comedic debut from musician Anderson .Paak; a Bollywood glimpse into the vibrant film industry of Malegaon, India; a London-set love story starring Florence Pugh from an Irish director; and a highly original survival thriller that takes us to the Galapagos Islands from Ron Howard. I can’t wait for TIFF audiences to take these journeys on the big screen and be transported by cinema together this September.”
