The Mission List: 16 films to see at the Toronto International Film Festival
All 16 titles on the Mission List are world premiere feature-length films. All are currently without distribution in Canada or the US. I’ve chosen no more than two films per country, and all films, in my view, fulfill TIFF’s mission:
Transform the way people see the world through film.
