A bomb threat at the Toronto International Film Festival caused the screening of the documentary “Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero” to be postponed.

The Saturday evening film premiere at Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall was postponed by around 20 minutes as authorities investigated the threat and determined it to be unfounded. During that moment, Lil Nas X was barred off the red carpet.

Toronto police looked into the area around the red carpet before the screening, according to Judy Lung, vice president of public affairs and communications for TIFF.

“Our usual security precautions remained in place during this time,” Lung added. “The screening started with a slight delay.” According to what we know, neither the artist nor the movie were the targets of this threat.

The film “Long Live Montero,” directed by Carlos López Estrada and Zac Manuel, follows the pop icon’s eight-month tour, which kicks off in September 2022 in support of his full-length first album “Montero.”
