#25. The Year of the Tiger Director: Sebastián LelioCast: Luis Dubó, Sergio Hernández, Viviana HerreraDistributor: Rights Available Buzz: One more standout item from the Vanguard programme offerings is this low budget Chilean film that garnered favorable reviews (Variety, THR and IndieWIRE) but went home empty handed at this year's Locarno Film Festival. Sebastián Lelio's third feature film (following his Cannes selected Navidad in 2009) puts a damaged landscape from Chile's deadly 2010 quake to extremely good use. The Gist: Perhaps a good starter-kit prior to the release of Life of Pi, Chile's devastating earthquake of February 27th, 2011, inadvertently converts prisoner Manuel into a fugitive. As he futilely searches for loved ones, he encounters a caged tiger washed up on shore. After freeing the beast, Manuel realizes that neither of them have much of a chance for survival in the present landscape.

Photo: Content Media The 2011 Toronto International Film Festival announced 56 more movies added to its festival line-up this year with selections in the Vanguard, Midnight Madness, Documentaries, City to City and Tiff Kids programs. And to be honest, the line-up is filled with titles, most of which are absolutely new to me.
I have seen one of the films under the Vanguard banner, a selection of young and cutting edge features and I've heard of Joachim Trier's Oslo, August 31, Ben Wheatley's Kill List (watch the trailer to the right) was a hit at South by Southwest earlier this year and the documentary selections include familiar names such as Werner Herzog, Morgan Spurlock, Jonathan Demme, Alex Gibney and Wim Wenders, the latter of which is delivering a 3D documentary centered on the dance world of Pina Bausch and her company. »
