Eight feature films will compete this year in the Platform section of the 46th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) (9-18 September). As in its previous editions, Platform embraces films by both established and emerging filmmakers that explore a wide variety of themes and genres.

Joana Vicente and Cameron Bailey, TIFF co-heads, mentioned: “It’s a pleasure for TIFF to provide the Platform programme as a stage that celebrates brilliant filmmakers. We’re certain that TIFF audiences will be pleasantly surprised with their unique approach to cinematic expression.”

Academy Award-nominated actor Riz Ahmed will head the jury for the 2021 Platform Competition and the TIFF co-heads commented: “Sound of Metal had its World Premiere at TIFF and was part of Platform’s 2019 line-up. Having Riz Ahmed join as Head of the 2021 Platform competition jury is a huge privilege.” Ahmed also added: “TIFF has always been a festival that showcases bold and daring cinema on a global stage. Its commitment to celebrating small independent films, like Sound of Metal, has had such a significant impact on my career and many others. I’m looking forward to watching all of this year’s selections and working alongside my fellow jury members.”
