Some really exciting news, Alicia fans! Toronto International Film Festival announced their platform lineup a few days ago, which included one of Alicia’s latest films – Euphoria. The director-driven section of the festival has been gaining momentum during its three-year run, and last year, it turned out a best picture winner with ‘Moonlight’.
Source | No pressure or anything, but last year’s Toronto International Film Festival Platform section turned out a Best Picture winner.
Now in only its third year, the festival’s director-driven program aims to showcase original names in international cinema, and has steadily become one of the most exciting sections of the annual festival. Last year, it played home to such gems as “Moonlight,” “Jackie,” and “Lady MacBeth,” following its inaugural year, where it bowed titles like “High-Rise,” “Bang Gang,” and “Land of Mine.”
This year promises to only further the mission of the section, thanks to 12 titles that speak to the breadth of modern cinema, and some of the rising stars it’s currently fostering. “Platform is the place to look for the distinct stamp of today’s most interesting directors as they establish their reputations,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF’s Artistic Director, in a statement.
This year’s lineup hails from eight countries on five continents. The films will compete for the Platform Prize, to be awarded by a jury that includes award-winning filmmakers Chen Kaige, Malgorzata Szumowska, and Wim Wenders.
The section will open with the world premiere of “The Death of Stalin,” from award-winning director-writer Armando Iannucci, which “follows the final days leading up to the Soviet dictator’s death.” “Sweet Country,” a period Western from acclaimed Australian filmmaker Warwick Thornton, will close out the section.
Other highlights include Mike White’s Ben Stiller-starring “Brad’s Status” and Clio Barnard’s “Dark River,” along with Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” starring Alicia Vikander and Eva Green as sisters on a mysterious trip.
“The films unveiled today embody our bold vision for the programme, and our ongoing commitment to showcase artistic and inventive directors that fearlessly push boundaries,” said Piers Handling, Director and CEO of TIFF. “The twelve titles exemplify bravery, dynamism and a unique voice in storytelling that we look for when curating the Platform programme.”
Below are the newest additions to the TIFF 2017 lineup, including the Platform program. Stay tuned for more programming announcements in the days to come.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs September 7 – 17 in Toronto, Canada.
Exciting news, Alicia fans! “Submergence” is set to open the San Sebastian Film Festival. For that occasion, Alicia and the film’s director Wim Wender will travel to Spain to present the film on September 22. Mark the date in your calendars, and stay tuned for full coverage here at Alicia Vikander Online!
The new film, starring Alicia Vikander, will compete in the fest’s competition section.
German director Wim Wenders will open the 65th San Sebastian Film Festival with his new film Submergence. Wenders and the film’s star, Alicia Vikander, will travel to Spain to present the film on Sept. 22.
Submergence, which will compete for the festival’s Golden Shell main prize, also stars James McAvoy. Shot across Berlin, Madrid, Toledo and multiple locations in France and Djibouti, the film was penned by Erin Dignam, based on the book by J.M. Ledgard.
McAvoy and Vikander play a hydraulic engineer, James More, and a bio-mathematician, Danielle Flinders, who fall in love in a remote hotel in Normandy. After they depart for dangerous missions, it is revealed that More works for the British Secret Service and is taken hostage in Somalia.
Wenders returns to San Sebastian after chairing the festival jury in 2002. He is the recipient of a Venice Golden Lion for The State of Things, a Palme d’Or for Paris, Texas, and the best director prize in Cannes for Wings of Desire. He has been nominated for three Academy Awards.
The San Sebastian Festival takes place Sept. 22-30.

Hello Alicia fans! After a very slow year event-wise (due to Alicia being busy filming Tomb Raider), she is making it up to us by attending 3 events in just a short span of days! Our girl has been photographed at three different Bvlgari events in Venice, looking as stunning as always. The first two parties were held at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia, and the third event was for the Bvlgari Puo Up Store Ribbon Cutting At The Galeries. She was joined by Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin, as well as Bulgari brand ambassador Lilly zu sayn Wittgenstein! For our fashion interested visitors, Alicia was wearing a Prabal Gurung dress on June 29, and a Marchesa Notte dress on the 30th. Both days she accessorized with Bulgari jewelry.
Hello Alicia fans! News are slow these days, as Alicia is probably enjoying some time off after completing Tomb Raider. To make up for the lack of updates, we have updated our photo gallery with many gorgeous new additions! They’re all from different press conferences, photocalls and photoshoots Alicia has done the recent years – and the best part, they’re all in gorgeous high quality. Some are brand new to our site, while others are additional photos from appearances we had from before. We hope you’ll like them!
Alicia is fronting Louis Vuitton’s new collaboration campaign with Jeff Koons, and we now have two photos from the promotional campaign in our photo gallery! We already saw some in her Elle France magazine photoshoot (scroll down for photos!), and hopefully we’ll have even more soon. I haven’t made up my mind about the bags just yet, but Alicia looks incredible!
For our fashion interested visitors, you can find the full collection at Louis Vuitton’s official website here. According to The Fashion Spot, the collaboration has been met with mixed reviews. Some describe it as “a joyous art history lesson” while others liken it to “a souvenir bag from a museum gift shop.” What’s your thoughts? Let us know in the comment section!
