The Toronto International Film Festival® today announced the World Premiere of Leehom Wang’s Open Fire Concert Film taking place on Thursday, September 15. The Premiere screening will be followed by an exclusive Q&A and performance by Chinese-American pop sensation Leehom Wang. The film documents Wang’s two historic sold-out concerts at Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium and provides an intimate portrait of the global superstar.

 

“Leehom Wang is one of the world’s biggest pop stars and Toronto audiences will be the first to experience his electrifying concert documentary,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival. “The film offers unprecedented insight into his work and highlights a rare bridge between North American and Chinese cultures.”

 

“It's an honour to be selected for the Toronto International Film Festival among many of the world's greatest filmmakers,” said Leehom Wang. “This will mark the World Premiere of our film Open Fire, and I hope TIFF audiences will find our story of Chinese pop music to be a meaningful cultural exchange.”
