Toronto Film Fest 2016: The Magnificent Seven Opening Night, Plus Birth of a Nation, Queen of Katwe, Manchester, Paterson

Share

The Toronto Film Festival (Sept 8th opening) is announcing its Galas and Special presentations this morning.

Nate Parker’s “Birth of a Nation” is already set for the first Friday, I’m told.

The new Mira Nair movie, “Queen of Katwe,” starring Lupita Nyong’o, will premiere on Saturday, Sept. 10th.

All together, a great selection. Should be exhausting!

Opening Night– The Magnificent Seven!

Closing Night Film– Edge of Seventeen

Keep refreshing…
