Our Autumn slate begins with an otherworldly cinematic exploration of 50 years of Star Trek™, running September 8 to December 30. There’ll be films presented with CBS Consumer Products, episode marathons, and Trek Talks — a series that considers the boundless influence of Star Trek on our culture, offering fans and newbies alike a universe of incredible programming.

Don’t miss the renowned directors, artists, and industry experts onstage this season. Toronto local, and TIFF favourite, Guillermo del Toro will be onstage this season with a series of Master Classes on Luis Buñuel, literary icon Margaret Atwood talks Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and author and documentary filmmaker David France presents his award-winning film How To Survive a Plague.

Cinephiles can delve deep into the provocative oeuvre of the enfant terrible of New German Cinema, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, with the first comprehensive retrospective in Toronto in a decade, including restorations, rarities, and Toronto premieres. Don’t miss the artful and imaginative horror film, Phantasm (1979) with director Don Coscarelli in attendance. And popular series Spirited Away: The Films of Studio Ghibli returns, just in time for the holiday season.

New releases this fall include some TIFF ‘16 picks, with Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) being presented in 35mm, and Jim Jarmusch's Gimme Danger, a doc that chronicles the story of The Stooges, among the many hot titles keeping you warm through autumn.

Tickets for the fall season go on sale September 21 at 10am for TIFF Members and September 28 at 10am for public.
