World premieres of Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game starring Jessica Chastain, and Dominic Cooke’s Ian McEwan adaptation On Chesil Beach with Saoirse Ronan (pictured) are among 32 additional Special Presentations films to join the Toronto roster on Tuesday.
The Papillon remake with Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek, Cannes hits The Florida Project by Sean Baker and In The Fade by Fatih Akin, as well as Feng Xiaogang’s Youth also take their place in the Special Presentations line-up.

Tuesday’s announcement brings the programme’s total to 48 world premieres, 10 international premieres, 19 North American premieres and 10 Canadian premieres. [Source]
The Academy announced on Wednesday that it’s inviting 774 new members — a record-breaking number.
It marks the second year in a row that the institution has broken its own record; last year, it set a new high-water mark by inviting 683 new members. Additionally, people of color make up 30% of the new class — a significant statistic following the #OscarsSoWhite protest that made waves in 2016. According to the Academy’s announcement, there has been a 331% increase of people of color invited to join the Academy from 2015-2017. The Academy has vowed to make its membership better reflect the world demographics, after many years of criticism that women, racial minorities and international artists were under-represented. As a result, the number of new-member invitations has risen steadily. [Source]
