World Premiere: The Swimmers is TIFF 2022’s Opening Night Gala film

The Swimmers is a soaring epic that dramatizes the true story of two sisters who left their home in war-torn Syria for a new life in Europe — and the chance to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The Swimmers joins Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmansand Lena Dunham’s Catherine Called Birdy as World Premieres at TIFF ’22, announced earlier this week.
