2021 TIFF Lineup Adds ‘Dear Evan Hansen,’ ‘Clifford the Big Red Dog,’ ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye,’ and More
The Toronto International Film Festival has also chosen ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ to open the event.
The Toronto International Film Festival has revealed Stephen Chbosky’s Dear Evan Hansen will be the opener of the 2021 edition of the festival. Besides announcing an opener, 2021 TIFF also revealed new additions to a lineup that’s already packed with highly-anticipated films, such as Walt Becker’s Clifford the Big Red Dog and Michael Showalter’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye.
Inspired by the acclaimed Broadway musical of the same name with music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Dear Evan Hansen follows a teenager who suffers from social anxiety throughout his high school experience. The film will open the festival on September 9, at the Roy Thomson Hall.
The updated 2021 TIFF lineup also includes recent Cannes hits, such as Mia Hansen-Løve’s Bergman Island and Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car. As a side attraction to the main lineup, 2021 TIFF will also feature a special screening of Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune. After premiering at Venice Film Festival on September 3, Dune will also screen as part of 2021 TIFF before being released theatrically and on HBO Max on October 22.
