Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has announced five feature films that will have their world premiere at the upcoming festival in September, including Ron Howard’s survival thriller Eden And We live in time starring Florence Pugh and Andrew Garfield.

The list includes Anderson .Paak’s dramatic comedy K-POP’S based on his life; Sophie Deraspe’s Shepherds, about a young advertising executive who trades his life in Montreal for a life as a shepherd in France; and about Reema Kagti’s Superboys of Malegaon based on the life of Nasir Shaikh, an amateur filmmaker from India, who explores what happens when filmmaking and friendships collide.

Imagine Entertainment Eden stars Jude Law, Ana de Armas and Sydney Sweeney and is based on true events and explores the lengths people will go to in their quest for a better life. Halifax-born Noah Pink wrote the screenplay. AGC International sold multiple territories at Cannes.

Brooklyn director John Crowley directed Film4-backed We live in time, in which a couple falls in love after a chance meeting, builds a house, starts a family and must face difficult truths.

Anita Lee, TIFF Chief Programming Officer, said: “We have a Canada/France co-production set in the French Alps, directed by a French-Canadian auteur; a Seoul-set comedy debut from musician Anderson .Paak; a Bollywood glimpse into the vibrant film industry of Malegaon, India; a love story set in London starring Florence Pugh from an Irish director; and a highly original survival thriller taking us to the Galapagos Islands from Ron Howard.”
