Both Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho and Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast will have their world premieres this September at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Last Night in Soho (in theaters on October 22) showcases Wright’s cinematic virtuosity in a time-traveling, London-based thriller starring Thomasin McKenzieAnya Taylor-Joy, and Matt Smith. Belfast (in theaters on November 12) is a poignant tale of a young boy growing up in Northern Ireland in the tumultuous sixties that is written and directed by Branagh. “Belfast is my most personal film. It’s about coming home — a dramatic journey of excitement, emotion and humor,” notes Branagh. Introducing Jude Hill as the young boy, Belfast features a remarkable cast that includes Caitriona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, and Ciarán Hinds.

In previous years, the Toronto International Film Festival has been the launching pad for such award-winning films as Pride & Prejudice, Dallas Buyers Club, The Theory of Everything, and Darkest Hour. With people now returning to cinemas, the return of TIFF, one of the world’s great international film festivals, promises to be especially momentous.
