•• A film shot in Calgary last year with breakout star Jacob Tremblay will make its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. Burn Your Maps, which also stars Vera Farmiga, Marton Csokas, Virginia Madsen and Suraj Sharma, was shot in downtown Calgary and Kananaskis Country, which subbed in for Mongolia, last summer. Directed by Jordan Roberts and adapted from Robyn Joy Leff’s short story, it tells the story of a boy named Wes who comes to believe he is a Mongolian goat-herder. Tremblay, 9, plays Wes.
Burn Your Maps was announced as part of the TIFF lineup on Tuesday. Festival organizers announced new additions to the gala and special presentation slate, including Bryan Cranston and Jennifer Garner’s Wakefield, about a man who hides from his family in his garage attic after suffering a nervous breakdown. The festival runs Sept. 8 to 18.
