TIFF news have been piling in lately, and a lot of it has to do with Natalie Portman. She’s due to speak at the charity Soiree event, and A Tale of Love and Darkness was to be added to the festival schedule. Well, her directorial debut now has been. Package owners can purchase tickets to include the film in their program now, and single ticket purchasers can buy their own tickets September 6th. You can get more info here.
Secondly, the Toronto International Film Festival is celebrating Michael Mann’s crime thriller Heat, as it is 20 years old this year.
Mann is due to accompany the film with a Q&A. Portman is not officially attached to this screening, but seeing that she is giving a speech and introducing her own film at the festival, you never know. Heat had one of Portman’s earliest roles that surely helped get her career going. More information on that event is here.
Thank you to Belerofonte and Lightscameraaction for the news. Toronto, are you ready for the Natalie Portman shutdown?
