Organizers say the fest is scrapping the Vanguard and City to City sections.
TIFF says it has “a renewed commitment to bold, discerning curation.”
And it promises “a more tightly curated” festival this year.
The Vanguard program featured “dark and edgy films that twist genre and art house conventions together in a new way.” Among the Vanguard movies at TIFF 2016 was Colossal, starring Anne Hathaway. The Canadian production, due in theatres in April of this year, also stars Jason Sudeikis. Hathaway plays Gloria, who discovers that a monster currently terrorizing Seoul might somehow be connected to her.
“As we look forward to this year’s festival, we’re finding new ways to select the best of the year for our audiences and enhance the experience for our industry and media delegates,” Piers Handling, director and CEO of TIFF, said in a statement.
“As we build on the success of the festival’s past four decades, we’re challenged to balance providing a generous choice of movies for over 400,000 festivalgoers with maintaining strong curatorial focus,” added Cameron Bailey, artistic director of TIFF.
