There is a press conference tomorrow morning at 10am EST as festival organizers will announce the first movies for TIFF (twitter has the link if you want to watch live).
Any predictions and hopes? I have bought twenty tickets this year, so I will be seeing a bunch of movies. If you guys have any questions for me regarding screentime (or anything like that), I will definitely answer it.
I will do my best to update this with reviews and impressions of the top films. Seeing as ‘Steve Jobs’ just got announced for NY, and ‘The Revenant’ is still shooting, I hope to see:
5. ‘The Walk’. I loved ‘Man on Wire’, so I am eager to see if Zemeckis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt can do the magnificent story justice.
4. ‘Spectre’ (pleaseeeeeee)
3. ‘Everest’ (seems perfect with a September release date, just like ‘Gravity’)
2. ‘Son of Saul’. Innovative cinematography from a first-time director? I’m in.
1. ‘Joy’. TIFF voters were the only audience to rightfully select ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ over ‘Argo’ a few years ago, so I hope David O. Russell brings his latest here.July 28, 2015 at 12:55 am #190529
* SPOTLIGHT – (Thomas McCarthy)
* AUTOBAHN – (Eran Creevy)
* THE GOOD DINOSAUR – (Peter Sohn)
* OUR BRAND IS CRISIS – (David Gordon Green)
* MACBETH – (Justin Kurzel).

From The Wrap
Toronto Film Festival to Open With Jake Gyllenhaal’s ‘Demolition,’ Lineup Includes ‘Martian,’ ‘Danish Girl’ The 40th annual Toronto International Film Festival will open with Jean-Marc Vallée’s “Demolition,” starring Jake G …July 28, 2015 at 8:23 am #190532
YES “The Lady in the Van” world premiereJuly 28, 2015 at 8:47 am #190533
Focus Features’ The Danish Girl will be a North American Premiere @ TIFF so no Telluride but World Premiere @ Venice.
While the other Focus Features’ Suffragette will have a European Premiere @ London Film Festival so no Venice.
Strange that Suffragette was not in the 1st wave announcement for TIFF as The Danish Girl.
Could Suffragette’s World Premiere be @ New York Film Festival ….. possibly as Opening Night Film on September 25th ???July 28, 2015 at 9:07 am #190534
I combed through all of the movies so far, and have a preliminary line-up.
Definitely seeing: Anomalisa,
Beasts of No Nation, The Lobster, The Daughter, The Danish Girl, Sicario,
Dheepan, Son of Saul, The Martian, Where to Invade Next
The Dressmaker, The Club, Desierto, Brooklyn, Legend, Victoria, Black Mass,
Demolition, Youth, Trumbo, Office
Probably not, but I’ll seek it out if it has good buzz: Sunset
Song, Louder than Bombs, Forsaken, The Program, Lolo, Colonia, Freeheld, The
Man Who Knew Infinity, The Idol, The Lady In the Van
So, I have 10/20 films pretty much set. I may buy more tickets depending on future announcements…

Oh, wow! I guess I never really noticed so much in years past, but it looks like a real Cannes invasion at TIFF.
Can’t wait for the full New York slate to be announced.July 28, 2015 at 10:50 am #190536
I wonder if “The Danish Girl” will be in Venice’s competition lineup.July 28, 2015 at 3:12 pm #190537
YASSSSSS Demolition! Maybe this is Fox Searchlight’s reaction to Southpaw’s tepid responses. If the film gets good reviews I’m pretty sure they’ll move it back to a proper release date for this awards season! Great selection @ TIFF this year!August 16, 2015 at 10:03 pm #190538
Last batch of Gala and Special screenings will be announced on Tuesday. Exciting times!August 18, 2015 at 9:05 am #190539
Wow – I Saw the Light, Our Brand is Crisis & Truth have been added to the TIFF slate. A jam-packed TIFF season to look forward to! Hope they don’t schedule all the buzzing films at the same time during odd weekday afternoons again like they did the past two years. I remember last year having to choose between Theory of Everything or Whiplash on Mon 3pm and The Imitation Game or Foxcatcher or Still Alice on Tue 3pm coz their only screenings other than the gala premiere were at those times and they all clashed!August 18, 2015 at 10:50 am #190540
‘The Lady in the Van’ is the one I’m most excited about.August 18, 2015 at 5:36 pm #190541
Toronto seems to have so much, which begs the question, what’s going to be at Telluride?
Also is Joy going to play any festivals? Or is it going to take the American Hustle path.
