TORONTO — DreamWorks’ computer-animated comedy “Antz,” which features the voices of Woody Allen and Sharon Stone, has been chosen to close the 23rd Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

Organizers Tuesday said “Antz” will have its world premiere as the closing night gala of the festival, which runs from Sept. 10 to 19. The U.S. release date of “Antz” is Oct. 2.

Other films announced as galas Tuesday include “Dancing at Lughnasa” and “L’Ecole de la Chair” (“School of Flesh”).

“Dancing at Lughnasa,” which stars Meryl Streep, is based on the Tony Award-winning play by Brian Friel. Set in Ireland in 1936, it tells the story of a family of sisters and the return of their long absent brother. The film is directed by Pat O’Connor, who also helmed “Circle of Friends.”

Set in modern day Paris, “L’Ecole de la Chair” stars Isabelle Huppert as a wealthy, successful woman attracted to a young impoverished prizefighter. The film is based on the novel by Yukio Mishima and directed by Benoit Jacquot.
