Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and George Clooney are just a few of the A-list stars with films screening at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. TIFF’s Artistic Director Cameron Bailey and Director and Chief Executive Officer Piers Handling announced the first batch of titles live in Toronto on Tuesday, July 25. The festival will kick off on September 7 and wrap up on September 17 with the gala screening of Canada’s C’est La Vie! starring Suzanne Clément.

Matt Damon, Halle Berry, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence will also see their movies screen in Toronto, as will Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, who star in the wilderness adventure flick The Mountain Between Us.

Angelina Jolie is set to bring her historical thriller First They Killed My Father to Canada. The movie, which is based on the memoir by Loung Ung, explores life in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime. The mother of six screened the film in Cambodia earlier this year and spoke of the importance of bringing Loung’s story to life. “This film was not made to focus on the horrors of the past, but to celebrate the resilience, kindness and talent of the Cambodian people.”
