Screen Australia has announced that Unjoo Moon’s Helen Reddy biopic I Am Woman will have its World Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) alongside True History of the Kelly GangDirt Music and ABC drama Black B*tch (working title). Hearts and Bones and The Australian Dream will have their International Premiere.

TIFF, as well as being one of the world’s premiere film festivals, is an important event for Australian titles and talent with its significant industry and media presence, making it a crucial launching pad for the North American market.

In addition to the films selected, Australian writer/director Charles Williams (All These Creatures) and director Jennifer Peedom (Mountain) are among 24 international practitioners to be invited to the TIFF Industry Filmmaker Lab.

The 44th Toronto International Film Festival runs from 5 – 15 September 2019.
