Swedish filmmaker Mikael Hafstrom's Evil will make its world premiere at the 28th Toronto International Film Festival.
The festival has also announced the North American premiere of Margarethe von Trotta's Rosenstrasse, signaling that the film will world premiere at Venice.
As previously reported in Screendaily, Dutch filmmaker Alex van Warmerdam's Grimm will also make its world premiere while compatriot Theo van Gogh's Interview will have its international premiere.
Other films making their North American premiere are Wolfgang Becker's current German hit Goodbye, Lenin!, Errance from Le Souffle director Damien Odoul (France), Soren Voight's Identity Kills (Germany)and Ruth Mader's Struggle (Austria).
Hafstrom's Evil follows a violent 16-year-old enrolled in a boarding school that proves even more thuggish than he.
Co-written by von Trotta and Pamela Katz, Rosenstrasse tells of the events behind an uprising in mid-war Berlin by the Gentile wives of Jewish men held by the Nazis.
Produced by Studio Hamburg Letterbox, Tele-Muenchen and Get Reel and backed by StudioCanal, the film stars Katja Riemann, Maria Schrader, Jutta Lampe, Svea Lohde and Doris Schade.
