Netflix's Hellbound Officially Invited To The 46th Toronto International Film Festival Primetime Section

Monday, August 16, 2021

From the Director of Train to Busan and Peninsula, Hellbound has been invited to the 46th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)’s PRIMETIME Program.

Director Yeon Sang-ho’s Hellbound has officially been invited to the 46th Toronto Film Festival (TIFF)’s PRIMETIME Program. The Netflix series shows the phenomena of supernatural beings appearing out of the blue to condemn people to hell. Taking advantage of the chaos, a new religious group named The New Truth thrives as people search for answers.

In 2012, Director Yeon’s first film The King of Pigs was the first South Korean animated feature film to be presented at the Cannes Film Festival. He later returned to the Cannes stage with blockbusters like Train to Busan and Peninsula. This year, the acclaimed director reached a new milestone as a global storyteller with his new Netflix series Hellbound being invited to the Toronto Film Festival - a first for a Korean series.

Director Yeon, who excels in various formats including webtoons, dramas, and films, collaborated with Songgot author Choi Gyu-seok to create Hellbound. The series will feature a top-notch cast including Yoo Ah-in, Park Jeong-min, Kim Hyun-joo, Won Jin-a, Yang Ik-june, Kim Do-yoon, Kim Sin-rock, Ryu Kyung-soo, and Lee Re. Hellbound is set to impress with its unique and fascinating story.

The 46th Toronto Film Festival is North America’s largest film festival and will introduce diverse genres and styles through new films from 9 September 2021 to 18 September 2021. The PRIMETIME section will see exceptional stories and directing as we see the line between television and film continue to blur and bring forth a new golden age of entertainment. Additionally, Director Ava DuVernay’s Netflix series Colin in Black & White will also be presented on the PRIMETIME Program, while The Special Presentations section will include Netflix films The Power of the Dog, The Guilty, and The Starling.

As anticipation builds following the invitation to the 46th Toronto Film Festival, Hellbound will be available on Netflix upon its release in over 190 countries.
