‘The Electrical Life of Louis Wain’ to be screened at TIFF 2021

The Toronto International Film Festival has revealed the line-up for this year’s edition – scheduled to take place from 9-18 September – and, to our collective happiness, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain will make its Canadian premiere there as part of the Gala Presentations programme. Here’s the official announcement:

The festival’s full schedule will be released only on 24 August but we can already see in its website that the movie is 111 minutes long.

Meanwhile, in its piece covering the announcement, Screen International brought this up:

Will Sharpe’s UK drama The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy will have its Canadian premiere as a Gala Presentation, suggesting it may be bound for a world debut at Telluride in August.

So, hopefully, we have more exciting news coming our way!
