Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton join TIFF Industry Conference speaker lineup

Toronto International Film Festival 2022

While TIFF films are being announced in full-swing, today we got some updates around TIFF’s industry programming.

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton join the TIFF Industry Conference’s Visionaries programme to showcase their new Apple documentary series Gutsy, based on their acclaimed New York Times bestselling book The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

“As two ‘gutsy’ women themselves, their breadth of experience and insight into social issues and gender politics is inspiring,” mentioned TIFF’s CEO Cameron Bailey in a recent media release. “We are honoured to host this special conversation as part of TIFF’s Industry Conference and spotlight their upcoming Apple Original documentary series Gutsy.”

The new streaming series will follow the mother-daughter team as they embark on a thought-provoking journey to have in-depth conversations with innovative women artists, activists, community leaders, and everyday heroes, to truly understand what it means to be gutsy. Joining them in their journey will be some of their own heroes, resilient women who have made an impact locally and around the world, including Kim Kardashian, Megan Thee Stallion, Dr. Jane Goodall, Gloria Steinem, Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, and many more.

Gutsy is produced for Apple by HiddenLight Productions, Clintons’ own production company, with both mother and daughter serving as executive producers. Joining them will be Johnny Webb, Siobhan Sinnerton, Roma Khanna, Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, and Anna Chai, who also serves as showrunner, with producers Kevin Vargas and Claire Featherstone, and consulting producers Huma Abedin and Bari Lurie.

The industry programming is off to an exciting start, and we cannot wait to see what other programming will be announced in the coming weeks.

Gutsy will premiere on Apple TV Plus on September 9, 2022.
