Midnight Madness, Restored Classics, Athens, Arthouse films & Documentaries all take centre stage at Tiff 2013

30 July 2013 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Midnight Madness has been going on for 25 years at the Toronto International Film Festival and has hosted such directors as Quentin Tarantino, George A. Romero, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, Don Coscarelli, Richard Linklater, Peter Jackson, Barry Levinson, Ben Wheatley, James Gunn, and Bong Joon-ho.

“Since its 1988 launch, the Midnight Madness programme emerged as a touchstone of cinematic shock, satiating the adventurous palate of bloodthirsty cinephiles from all over the world,” stated Colin Geddes, International Programmer for the Festival. “When the witching hour strikes and the human brain starts slipping into dream mode, the Ryerson Theatre will once again serve up a feast of phantasmagorical characters and jaw-dropping scenes, playing host to bizarre biological monstrosities, ruthless dominatrix gangs, paranormal mirrors, and the hijinks of supernatural cheerleaders.”

Carrying on the tradition of being a global showcase the 2013 edition features films from USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Austria.  Receiving »

2013 Toronto Film Festival Adds Midnight Madness, Vanguard, City to City and Documentary Selection

30 July 2013 8:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2013 Toronto Film Festival selection grew quite a bit today as the organizers announced the Midnight Madness, Documentary, Vanguard, City to City and Cinematheque selections for this year's festival. Among the title announced there aren't exactly a ton of names that pop off the paper immediately. The Midnight Madness selection will open with Lucky McKee's All Cheerleaders Die in which a young girl who practices the dark arts turns on her best friend after she joins the cheer squad. However, I assume most attention will be on Eli Roth's The Green Inferno, a film in which a group of humanitarians go to the Amazon to help a native tribe only to have the tribe kidnap them and later learn their cannibalistic heritage is very much intact. The Documentary selection includes plenty of familiar faces such as Marcel Ophuls, Claude Lanzmann and Errol Morris and Frank Pavich will be bringing Jodorowsky's Dune, »
