George Clooney and Angelina Jolie’s directorial projects could be the most sought-after tickets at TIFF

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), a leading barometer of the upcoming movie awards season, unveiled its 2017 slate Tuesday with screenings of new films directed by George Clooney and Angelina Jolie.

The 42nd festival, which runs from Sept. 7 to Sep 17, will showcase ”Surburbicon,” Clooney’s sixth movie as director, starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore and written by the Coen Brothers.

Jolie’s drama, “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers,” is adapted from Cambodian human rights activist Loung Ung’s memoir of the same name.

Other highly anticipated films playing in the Galas and Special Presentations categories at TIFF include Darren Aronofsky’s thriller “Mother!” starring Jennifer Lawrence, Guillermo Del Toro’s latest horror offering “The Shape of Water,” the world premiere of Andy Serkis’s directorial debut, “Breathe,” and Alexander Payne’s satire “Downsizing,” also starring Matt Damon.
