This year's Toronto International Film Festival is taking place between 8-18 September 2022. The 11-day festival celebrates both Canadian and international cinema and we're excited to see films that were shot in Wales feature at this year's festival:


Catherine Called Birdy - dir. Lena Dunham (UK) World Premiere

A 13th-century teenager (Bella Ramsey) rebels against her father (Andrew Scott) when he tries to marry her off to a wealthy man, in Lena Dunham’s playful adaptation of Karen Cushman’s bestselling novel.

This film features shot sequences at Tretower Court. Timings and screening locations can be found here: Catherine Called Birdy (


The Eternal Daughter – dir. Joanna Hogg (UK) North American Premiere

This haunting mystery from director Joanna Hogg (The Souvenir) stars Tilda Swinton in a mesmerizing performance as a woman forced to confront past memories while visiting an eerily empty old manor.

This film also features shot sequences in north Wales. This is the closing night film. Timings and screening locations can be found here: Dalíland (
