JACKIE, MOONLIGHT, NOCTURAMA TO SCREEN IN TIFF PLATFORM SECTION


Added to the TIFF lineup last year, the Platform slate is the Toronto festival's sole competitive strand. With a diverse selection last year that was largely low on big names, there's been a considerable uptick in that regard for the 2016 selection. Pablo Larrain's Jackie Kennedy biopic Jackie will screen alongside new works from Bertrand Bonello, Zacharias Kunuk and Kurosawa Kiyoshi. Take a look at the first and second announcements of TIFF 2016 screeners, and then check out the recent additions below. The fest runs from the 8th to the 18th of September.
