TIFF 2023 Releases Lineup Amid SAG and WGA Strikes

Festival season is not in a good place. With both the Screen Actors Guild and the Writers Guild striking simultaneously, attendance will likely be low. That means no Lady Gaga getting out of a boat and no Elle Fanning in a new version of Dior’s New Look. In solidarity with the strikes, Luca Guadagnino’s Challengers has even pulled out of the Venice Film Festival and is moving to next April instead. Oof! Still, the festivals must carry on, and the Toronto International Film Festival is doing just that. On July 24, the festival announced its Gala and Special Presentations, a list of 60 films from filmmakers including Taika Waititi, Richard Linklater, and Alexander Payne. One way around the star deficit is to have the stars who direct in the lineup, and this slate has no shortage of that, with films from Anna Kendrick, Michael Keaton, Viggo Mortensen, Chris Pine, and Ethan Hawke all on the docket. Below, the full list of films that will be screening at TIFF 2023, September 7–17.
