TORONTO — TIFF is excited to announce that Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will showcase their new Apple documentary series Gutsy, based on The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience and produced by their production company HiddenLight, as part of TIFF’s Industry Conference Visionaries programme.

The Visionaries programme at TIFF’s Industry Conference offers inspirational keynotes from distinguished industry leaders who are forging innovative new paths creatively and in business. The Visionaries programme is supported by The Hollywood Reporter as its official media partner.

“We are thrilled to welcome Hillary and Chelsea Clinton to TIFF 2022,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF CEO. “As two ‘gutsy’ women themselves, their breadth of experience and insight into social issues and gender politics is inspiring. We are honoured to host this special conversation as part of TIFF’s Industry Conference and spotlight their upcoming Apple Original documentary series Gutsy.”

Based on the Clintons’ acclaimed New York Times bestselling book, The Book of Gutsy Women, the Apple series features Hillary and Chelsea as they embark on a thought-provoking journey to speak with innovative women artists, activists, community leaders, and everyday heroes who show us what it truly means to be gutsy. The docuseries shows Hillary and Chelsea as you’ve never seen them before, revealing their special mother–daughter bond and the unique, multi-generational way they approach the important and timely issues highlighted in each episode.

Joining the Clintons in the docuseries are some of their personal heroes: extraordinary, courageous, and resilient women who have made an impact in their community and on the world, including Kim Kardashian, Megan Thee Stallion, Dr. Jane Goodall, Gloria Steinem, Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, and many more.

Produced for Apple by HiddenLight Productions in association with Left/Right LLC, “Gutsy” is executive produced by Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, alongside 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.
