The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has announced its documentary lineup and one title in particular is backed by some major star power. Leonardo DiCaprio and actor-filmmaker Fisher Stevens' collaborative piece The Turning Point will make its world premiere during the 10-day festival in September.
Should Leonardo attend the premiere it will mark the first time the actor has attended Toronto's film festival.
Leonardo's passion project focuses on climate change and the ways humans can minimize their negative impact on the planet. The Oscar winner is a longtime advocate for environmental issues and this film is another way for the star to educate and inform others on causes close to his heart. Just last month the actor raised $45 million at a star-studded gala in St. Tropez in support of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
Organizers have also announced this year's Vanguard, Cinematheque, Short Cuts and Midnight Madness programs. Titles that fall into these categories include: Free Fire Ben (Brie Larson), Colossal (Anne Hathaway) and The Bad Batch (Jim Carrey).
Last month, TIFF's Artistic Director Cameron Bailey and Director and Chief Executive Officer Piers Handling released the full list of movies set to screen in Toronto. The star-studded lineup includes films starring the likes of Nicole Kidman, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Blake Lively and more.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs Sept. 8-18.
