The 2023 Toronto International Film Festival is less than a month away, and the list of exciting projects set to premiere at this festival is getting longer by the day. This year’s Primetime program has finally been unveiled and it will include world premieres of All the Light We Cannot See and Expats.

Anita Lee, TIFF’s Chief Programming Officer, was in charge of announcing the Primetime program, and said it will be “bigger than ever and [give] audiences the exclusive and unmatched opportunity to celebrate the best new international series together, in cinema, on the big screen.”

The highly-anticipated adaptation of Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel All the Light We Cannot See will see the light of day in Toronto before heading to Netflix in November. Lulu Wang’s highly-anticipated follow-up to The Farewell, the Amazon series Expats starring Nicole Kidman, Sarayu Blue, and Ji-young Yo, will also have its world premiere at TIFF.

The list of films included in the Primetime program also features the romantic drama Alice & Jack starring Andrea Riseborough and Domhnall Gleeson, the Israeli crime drama Bad Boy, and the Canadian comedy Bria Mack Gets a Life.

The 2023 Toronto International Film Festival will take place between September 7 and 17, with Hayao Miyazaki’s The Boy and the Heron serving as the festival’s opening film.
