2022 TIFF: Charlotte Le Bon’s Falcon Lake, Graham Foy’s The Maiden & Carly Stone’s North of Normal Added to CWC Section

Yesterday Toronto International Film Festival programmers added a huge dose of Canadiana to the 2022 line-up sprinkling even more films. Among the new reveals we find the Contemporary World Cinema, TIFF Docs and Short Cuts programmes taking off with the Contemporary World Cinema added a whopping eleven maple leaf offerings which include Charlotte Le Bon‘s Quinzaine preemed Falcon Lake (read review), Graham Foy‘s The Maiden (a Giornate degli Autori selection) & the world premiere screening to Carly Stone‘s North of Normal. Another film title that we predicted in Darlene Naponse’s Stellar will also receive its world premiere.
