Making it to the Toronto International Film Festival is a huge deal for filmmakers at any stage of their careers. The annual Canadian festival features everything from smaller movies by up-and-coming filmmakers to potential blockbusters from some of the biggest names in the business.

The selections for the 2022 festival, which runs Sept. 8 through Sept. 18, reflect some of the best and most creative minds in filmmaking today. TIFF 2022 has divided its presentations up into a few different categories. The marquee categories are the Gala Presentations and the Special Presentations, which are where some of the festival's most-anticipated movies will make their debuts.

Among the 2022 Gala lineup are "The Woman King," starring Viola Davis and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, and Tyler Perry's latest film, "A Jazzman's Blues." The Special Presentations, meanwhile, include buzzy films such as "My Policeman," starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrin; the "Knives Out" sequel "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery"; and Steven Spielberg's latest, "The Fabelmans."

Along with these big-name presentations, TIFF has also made room for some quirkier fare under its Discovery, Midnight Madness, and Wavelengths categories. The Wavelengths selections are for the niche-art-film fans, while Midnight Madness features the especially bizarre. For example, this year, the Daniel Radcliffe-starring Weird Al Yankovic biopic will highlight the Midnight Madness section. Discovery, meanwhile, is exactly what it sounds like: a showcase designed to feature promising early-career directors.
