Even though Toronto International Film Festival have reduced their lineup by around 20% when compared to past years, there’s no shortage of high-profile premieres and potential discoveries. Ahead of the festival, which runs from September 7 through 17, they’ve now unveiled the first look at their lineup, including Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Darren Aronofsky’s mother!, Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, George Clooney’s Suburbicon, Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut Lady Bird (opening the festival), Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour, and many more.

There’s also past festival favorites, including Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name, Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or winner The Square, The Rider, Mudbound, and more. Other highly-anticipated projects include Joachim Trier’s Thelma, Sebastián Lelio’s Disobedience (whose A Fantastic Woman is also in the lineup), the Jessica Chastain-led Woman Walks Ahead, and more.

Check out the lineup so far below and new images where available.
