‘My Policeman’ Cast Honored with Toronto International Film Festival’s Tribute Award


For the first time in Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) history, the prestigious Tribute Award will be given to an ensemble. TIFF has chosen to honor the cast of My Policeman for their performances in the highly anticipated film. Based on the novel by Bethan Roberts, My Policeman follows policeman Tom (Harry Styles and Linus Roache), teacher Marion (Emma Corrin and Gina McKee), and museum curator Patrick (David Dawson and Rupert Everett) and the love triangle that develops between them over decades starting in the 1950s.

“When your film shifts through time and across fluid boundaries of love and desire, you need a cast that can embody those nuances in every gesture. Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, and David Dawson deliver beautiful, mirrored performances with Linus Roache, Gina McKee, and Rupert Everett.”

TIFF CEO Cameron Bailey

TIFF made the decision to make the Tribute Award gender-neutral for the first time this year, opening the door for a cast vs. individual win. Past winners include Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kate Winslet, Anthony Hopkins, Meryl Streep, and Joaquin Phoenix. My Policeman is set to premiere at TIFF in September before receiving a limited theatrical release on October 21. The film will land on Prime Video on November 4.
