Tiff 2012 News: More Canadian Content Announced

8 August 2012 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Toronto – On August 8th, in the Imperial Room of The Fairmont Royal York Hotel, the 37th annual Toronto International Film Festival held its Canadian Press Conference. Inside, guests were treated to an assortment of trademark Canadiana, including free beer, cakes, polite conversations and poutine.

Just as you thought the conference couldn’t get more Canadian, Tiff 2012 announced the next wave of hometown content to appear at this year’s festival.

“Through comedy, thrills, drama and suspense, films in the lineup present stories of youth and violence, coming of age, the environment, dysfunctional families, sex and celebrity,” said Steve Gravestock, Senior Programmer of the festival.

“From intimate, affecting stories with big impact to films with global scope, the Canadian films in this year’s Festival will move audiences”.

Screenings include:

Antiviral (North American Premiere)

Brandon Cronenberg, USA/Canada

Starring Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Douglas Smith, Malcolm McDowell

Tiff 2012 Announces Canadian Features Including New Films From Sarah Polley, Xavier Dolan and Brandon Cronenberg

8 August 2012 12:42 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In the last major update for the Toronto International Film Festival 2012 slate, they’ve announced their Canadian features. The line-up includes Sarah Polley’s upcoming documentary Stories We Tell, coming off her Take This Waltz this summer (which also premiered at Tiff). The other major films include two we’ve seen at Cannes,one being Brandon Cronenberg‘s Antiviral, which premiered alongside his father’s Cosmopolis. We disliked it (full review), saying it came off as an “an amateurish, high-budget student film.” The other major title is Xavier Dolan‘s Laurence Anyways, which we loved (full review), calling it a major step forward for the filmmaker. Check out the rest of the titles below, which I’m sure will include many discoveries.
