“Nothing But the Truth” — the political thriller with Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon and Alan Alda that was shot in Memphis last fall — will have its world premiere Sept. 8 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Festival officials are scheduled to make the announcement today. The movie will be part of the event’s prestigious “Gala Programme,” a high-profile showcase for North American and international films that are screening out of competition. ...
According to Variety, the Toronto International Film Festival is “second only to Cannes in terms of high-profile pics, stars and market activity.” A Toronto screening often marks the start of a picture’s Oscar campaign.
After its Sept. 8 premiere, “Nothing But the Truth” will open Dec. 19 in New York and Los Angeles, to be eligible for Academy Awards consideration. It will open in Memphis and other cities in early 2009. A special preview screening for local cast and crew members likely will take place before its Memphis opening.
