The 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup got a lot stronger this morning by adding several new titles to the Special Presentations, Masters, Documentaries, Vanguard and Contemporary World Cinema selection as well as announcing the Mavericks and Discovery Programme picks.
Most notable selections begin with Special Presentations additions of The Weinstein’s St. Vincent starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarty and James Franco‘s The Sound and the Fury. The St. Vincent screening will be a world premiere and suggest Murray will be walking the TIFF red carpet… now that’s a get for the fest I’m sure brings a smile to their face.
In the Masters selection we have Studio Ghibli’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya as well as the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winner, Nuri Bilge Ceylan‘s Winter Sleep. The Vanguard selection has added The Voice, the lastest film from Persepolis helmer Marjane Satrapi and in the Mavericks selection not only do you have interviews with the likes of Denzel Washington, Antoine Fuqua, Reese Witherspoon, Richard Gere and Robert Duvall, but screenings of Martin Scorsese‘s New York Review of Books documentary The 50 Year Argument and Julie Taymor‘s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The Toronto Film Festival runs from September 4-14 and I have previewed all the new titles that have been added directly below as well as updated the complete Toronto lineup right here. It’s going to be a great fest
