Its rival Amazon has two of the TIFF titles, “Honey Boy” and “Radioactive.”As usual, the TIFF press release announcing the lineup provides clues as to which titles will be going to the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals ahead of Toronto by its designations of which films are world premieres, which are North American premieres and which are Canadian premieres.The release shows that the films premiering in Toronto will include “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “The Goldfinch,” “Just Mercy,” “Western Stars,” “Dolemite Is My Name,” “Knives Out,” “Jojo Rabbit” and “The Personal History of David Copperfield,” while Venice (which will announce its lineup on Thursday) is liable to show “Joker,” “The Laundromat” and “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” and the Telluride lineup will likely include “Ford v Ferrari,” “Judy,” “Marriage Story,” “Motherless Brooklyn,” “Parasite,” “The Two Popes” and “Uncut Gems.”Additions to TIFF’s Galas and Special Screenings programs will be announced in the coming weeks, as will films in many other sections of the festival.
