Taylor Swift will attend TIFF in Toronto

Hey Swifties: The Toronto International Film Festival has announced that Taylor Swift will be screening her Video-Music-Awards-sweeping “All Too Well: The Short Film” on Sept. 9.

Swift will appear in conversation with TIFF CEO Cameron Bailey to “discuss filmmaking and visual aspects of her music.”

Swift’s re-recording of the global phenomenon album “Red” was released last fall to critical acclaim, and earlier this week she announced her tenth studio album, a 13-track record titled “Midnights.”

The “All Too Well” screening will take place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Sept. 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It will be an in-person event.

Swift last attended TIFF in 2013 for the film “One Chance.” Her wildly successful “Reputation” stadium tour played the city in 2018.

Hoping to spot other celebrities at this year’s festival? Here’s who’s rumored to be attending TIFF 2022:

Harry Styles: Styles stars in “My Policeman” alongside fellow A-lister Florence Pugh. Styles is currently on tour, but a gap in his schedule will allow him to stop by TIFF anytime from Sept. 11 to Sept. 14.

Jennifer Lawrence: Lawrence leads in “Causeway,” a film about military trauma and finding healing in unlikely places. Lawrence has been to TIFF several times, including for premieres of “A Place Beyond the Pines” and “Silver Linings Playbook.”

Michelle Yeoh: The “Everything Everywhere All At Once” star will receive the inaugural TIFF Share-Her-Journey Groundbreaker Award for her decades-long screen career. The action star has appeared in numerous films and TV shows, including “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Shang-Chi.”

Lee Jung-jae & Jung Woo-sung: TIFF 2022 will feature “A Man of Reason” and “Hunt,” by Jung-jae and Woo-sung, respectively. The two will appear in an in-depth conversation about their careers and the rise of Korean films such as “Parasite” and series like “Squid Game” at home and abroad.

Zack Efron: The “High School Musical” alum-turned-serious-actor stars alongside Russell Crowe in “The Greatest Beer Run Ever,” which is set in 1967 during the Vietnam War.

Steve Spielberg: One of film’s most prolific directors makes his TIFF debut with “The Fabelmans,” a personal coming-of-age story compared to last year’s touching, autobiographical “Belfast.”

Darren Aronofsky: Known for buzzy, cutting-edge films such as “Black Swan,” director Aronofsky will debut “The Whale,” for which actor Brendan Fraser is also slated to receive the TIFF Tribute Award for Performance.

Sarah Polly: Canadian national treasure (and writer, director and actress) Polley premieres her feature “Women Talking” at TIFF 2022. The film is her first feature in nearly a decade, and features performances by Frances McDormand, Rooney Mara and Jessie Buckley.
