TIFF 2021 is on, and partially in person thanks to relaxed border restrictions announced by Canada yesterday. The film version of “Dear Evan Hansen” will open the festival and there are plenty of exciting features. What they don’t have yet are the Cannes winner, “Titane,” or Wes Anderson’s “The French Dispatch,” and few others they may add over the next month. They did include a children’s movie, the live action “Clifford the Big Red Dog,” which looks like it might be an ironic horror film. (Just kidding! We love Clifford!)
