The Toronto International Film Festival® announced today an exclusive, TIFF Members-only first look at Theodore Melfi’s new feature film Hidden Figures during the Festival. On Saturday, September 10, 20th Century Fox will present exclusive footage of the film, a Q&A with Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe and Pharrell Williams, followed by a concert with Williams and friends on Festival Street for select TIFF Members.
"Toronto audiences will be the first to hear Pharrell's new music for Hidden Figures, and they'll see it performed live on Festival Street," said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. "This film brings together an incredible array of talent. We're beyond happy to be giving audiences a taste of it."
"I am so honoured for the world to first see a part of Hidden Figures at TIFF where I was lucky enough to premiere my first ever feature, St. Vincent," said Melfi. "TIFF has a very special place in my heart. Pharrell’s musical genius acumen takes the film to a different level."
