#TIFF22: CAST OF “MY POLICEMAN” TO RECEIVE A TIFF TRIBUTE AWARD FOR PERFORMANCE
The 2022 TIFF Tribute Gala is set to take place Sunday, September 11, 2022 at Fairmont Royal York Hotel and being honoured this year is the Cast of MY POLICEMAN, including Harry Styles and Emma Corrin! The TIFF Tribute Award for Performance is presented by Polestar and the Awards are brought to us by BVLGARI. This marks the first time an Ensemble is being honoured, in addition to a new gender-neutral acting award.
Synopsis of MY POLICEMAN:
Adapted for the screen by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Ron Nyswaner from Bethan Roberts’ award-winning novel of the same name, Prime Video’s My Policeman follows three young people — policeman Tom (Styles), teacher Marion (Corrin), and museum curator Patrick (Dawson) — as they embark on an emotional journey in 1950s Britain. Flashing forward to the 1990s, Tom (Roache), Marion (McKee), and Patrick (Everett) are still reeling with longing and regret, but now they have one last chance to repair the damage of the past. Grandage carves a visually transporting, heart-stopping portrait of three people caught up in the shifting tides of history, liberty, and forgiveness.
The TIFF Tribute Awards have served as an awards-season bellwether, with past honourees Jessica Chastain, Roger Deakins, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Joaquin Phoenix, Taika Waititi, and Chloé Zhao going on to win awards on the international stage. The TIFF Tribute Awards honour the film industry’s outstanding contributors and their achievements, recognizing leading industry members, acting talent, directorial expertise, new talent, and a below-the-line artist and creator. The Awards event also serves as TIFF’s largest annual fundraiser to support TIFF’s Every Story fund, which promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in film and TIFF’s core mission to transform the way people see the world through film. More information on the 2022 TIFF Tribute Awards event and this year’s honourees will follow in the coming weeks.
We’re less than a month away from TIFF ’22! This is a good type of anxious!
