The Toronto International Film Festival was established in 1976, and it is always held in September, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
TIFF is a good indicator for the upcoming Oscar nominations, because almost all the movies that are nominated or awarded at TIFF are later nominated/awarded at the Academy Awards.
The 2018 TIFF has an excellent jury - Lee Chang-dong, Bela Tarr and Mira Nair. And the organization said that they made sure that at least 20 percent of all film critics and journalists are members of underrepresented groups, such as women and people of color.
Titles that are already making our heads turn are Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga collaboration A Star is Born (2018); Nicole Kidman's new drama Destroyer (2018); Beautiful Boy (2018) starring Timothee Chalamet, Steve Carell and Amy Ryan; Hugh Jackman's The Front Runner (2018); and Christian Petzold's WWII art-house movie Transit (2018).
