Philly's getting a double dose of love in Toronto.

The Toronto International Film Festival released its official schedule Tuesday, bringing the total number of films to be shown this year to 366, including 146 world premieres. Cory Monteith's final film, McCannick, which was shot in Philly and includes several local actors, was announced last week as part of the festival's offerings.

Now, the Ron Howard-directed doc - which chronicles Jay Z's inaugural Made in America festival on the Parkway in 2012 - will also mark its premiere at the star-studded 11-day film event.

The Toronto International Film Festival takes place from Sept. 8-18.

And for the rest of you eagerly anticipating round two of Made in America: 10 days.
