‘Human Remains’ gets Toronto world preem

Quebec helmer Denys Arcand’s first English-language feature will have its world premiere at a gala screening during Toronto’s Festival of Festivals.

Produced by Montreal-based Max Films in co-production with Toronto’s Atlantis Films, “Love and Human Remains” is an adaptation of Edmonton writer Brad Fraser’s controversial hit play, “Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love.”

Arcand — whose last two French-lingo flicks, “The Decline of the American Empire” and “Jesus of Montreal,” were critical and B.O. successes — is Quebec’s best-known filmmaker.

The decision to premiere “Love and Human Remains” at the Toronto fest rather than at Montreal’s World Film Festival will likely be the subject of some controversy in Arcand’s home province.

The Festival of Festivals takes place in Toronto Sept. 9-18, with the gala screenings unspooling at the Elgin Winter Garden Theatre Centre.
