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

The selections for the 2022 festival, which runs from September 8 to September 18, reflect some of the best and most creative minds in cinema today. TIFF 2022 divided its presentations into several 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.

Among the 2022 gala lineup are The Woman King, starring Viola Davis and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, and Tyler Perry’s latest film, Jazzman’s Blues. Special presentations, meanwhile, include blockbusters such as My Cop, starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrine; “Knives Out” sequel “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”; and Steven Spielberg’s latest film, The Fabelmans.

Along with these big-name presentations, TIFF also made room for some stranger fare in its Discovery, Midnight Madness and Wavelengths categories. The Wavelengths selection is for fans of the niche art film, while Midnight Madness features the particularly weird. For example, this year the Daniel Radcliffe biopic Weird Al Yankovic will highlight the Midnight Madness section. Discovery, meanwhile, is exactly what it sounds like: a showcase designed to showcase promising early-career filmmakers.
