The Toronto International Film Festival kicked off on Sept.6 to the delight of movie fans and critics worldwide. We are taking a look at the Arab participation at the event which increases every year to include veterans and new directors with debut movies.

The Arab movie world has grown tremendously and over the last few years in particular. Leading the way is 73-year-old Algerian filmmaker Merzak Allouache with his new movie Divine Wind. The movie was shot in black and white and talks about the dangers of radicalisation, a topic which Allouache has explored before. The film will have its world premiere in the festival’s Masters sidebar.

Another one of the must-see movies which will be shown at TIFF 2018 is Lebanese actress-director Nadine Labaki’s Capernaum. Playing as a Special Representation at the festival, the movie centres around children on the streets of Beirut. Impressively, the film already won the Jury Prize at Cannes where it premiered back in May. Labaki was also awarded the TIFF People’s Choice Award in 2011.
