TIFF to screen ‘Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s)’ as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

The Toronto International Film Festival will commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s death with a special screening of director Roger Michell’s ‘Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s)’.

The special screening of Michell’s ‘Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s)’ is set for September 18 at the Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto, one day before the funeral of Britain’s longest reigning monarch.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the last film from the ‘Notting Hill’ rom-com director stars Queen Elizabeth II, and the documentary includes archival footage edited into an impressionistic collage and offers behind-the-scenes access to the long-serving Queen.

The news of the death of the Queen, came just before the beginning of the 47th edition of the Toronto International film festival which began on September 8, due to which the event was halted for a few minutes to commemorate the loss of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 47th Toronto International Film Festival will premiere many artistic films for a span of 10 days.

Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully at Balmoral Castle at the age of 96, the royal family said in a statement. The UK’s longest-reigning monarch was placed under medical supervision earlier on Thursday after her condition deteriorated.

Buckingham Palace issued a statement while referring to the Prince of Wales, Charles as the King.
