What Will Premiere At The 2022 Fall Film Festivals?

By Matt Neglia 

With the recent announcements that Rian Johnson’s “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” Clement Virgo’s “Brother,” Sanaa Lathan’s “On The Come Up,” and Nicholas Stoller’s “Bros” will all be premiering at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), the Next Best Picture team came together on the podcast yesterday to discuss the films we think might be having their world premieres at the big four fall film festivals: Venice, Telluride, TIFF & NYFF. It was a very productive conversation, filled with tons of speculation, some of which might be very off. Still, some predictions we suspect are right on the money given the past trends on some of these festivals, their relationships with the filmmakers, and the release dates we’re aware of. Below is a recapped list of all the titles we discussed (with a few extra ones) on the podcast. This is by no means a comprehensive list and will probably be updated the more information we get over the next few days, with TIFF expected to announce more titles this week and the Venice lineup coming at the end of the month on July 26th.

I want to reiterate that this is by no means a final list, and we’re well aware a lot of titles are missing, and not every international film that plays at TIFF will play at NYFF, for example. We’ll be revisiting this post periodically to make updates as we learn more in the coming days. The movies we currently predict will skip the fall film festivals entirely, either because they’re not ready or the studio will elect to release them with a major theatrical push, include David O. Russell’s “Amsterdam,” Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon,” Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light,” Martin Scorsese’s “Killers Of The Flower Moon,” Marc Forster’s “A Man Called Otto” & Guillermo del Toro’s “Pinocchio.” One final time…this is all unconfirmed and should not be considered true as we’re speculating simply for fun. Next Best Picture is extremely excited to be covering all four of the fall film festivals this year with Tom O’Brien attending Venice, Dan Bayer attending TIFF and NYFF, and I’ll be at Telluride, TIFF & NYFF.

Is there a title missing? Do you agree with any of our early predictions? What re you most excited to see at this year’s fall film festivals? Please let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or on our Twitter account.
