Steven Spielberg Brings His Very Personal Film ‘The Fabelmans’ to the Toronto International Film Festival This Fall

Steven Spielberg will present his very personal film “The Fabelmans” at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall, organizers announced Friday. It will be the world premiere of the film, which Spielberg says is based on his early years, and will also mark the legendary filmmaker’s first appearance at the festival.

Spielberg co-wrote the coming-of-age story – about a young man and a heartbreaking family secret – with Tony Kushner, with whom he also collaborated on ‘Munich’, ‘Lincoln’ and “West Side Story”. The cast includes Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen and Judd Hirsch.

The Toronto International Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, previously announced that it will also host the world premieres of Rian Johnson’s “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” the Harry Styles-directed drama “My Policeman” and Gina-Prince Bythewood’s historical epic “The Woman King”, starring Viola Davis.

“The Fabelmans” is set for a November 11 theatrical release by Universal Pictures and is expected to be a major player in the upcoming awards season.
