Organizers announced Tuesday that Redgrave’s “Song for Marion” will close next month’s Toronto festival, which runs Sept. 6 to 16 and is one of the key cinema gatherings that kick off Hollywood’s fall movie lineup and Academy Awards season.

Lee’s documentary “Bad 25″ also is playing the festival, marking the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s 1987 album “Bad.” The film features footage shot by Jackson himself along with interviews with such stars and music producers as Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, and L.A. Reid.
