2013 Fall Film Preview, Her, American Hustle, Counselor
With this week feeling, release-wise, a little like the industry at large is taking a deep breath while effecting the gear change from Summer tentpole scheduling to awards season programming, it’s a good moment to pause and take a look at the goodies to come in the waning months of 2013. It’s a pretty stellar lineup, as films we've seen throughout the festival year start to make their way into awards-friendly end-of-year slots, vying with films we haven't yet seen but have been patiently, and in some cases pantingly, looking forward to for months now. In fact the lineup is so stellar that for the purposes of whittling down a manageable list of the films we're most anticipating, we made the decision to exclude anything that features in our Most Anticipated Toronto Internatioal Film Festival list just to narrow the field a little.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival preview
While there might be some overlap with Venice and a little stolen thunder (at least for hardcore cinephiles) thanks to Telluride, that doesn’t make the TIFF lineup this year any less spectacular. In fact this year's slate — that runs as deep as it does long — works more than ever to make those other festivals, impressive though they may individually be, feel a little like the throat-clearings before the main event. Boasting a staggering array of splashy premieres, the latest from a barrage of auteurs and a host of indie efforts that have hitherto flown below the radar but that could surprise in a big way, it feels like the TIFF 2013 program may be their most packed ever (though we seem to say that every year). So whilst our attendees face the unenviable (but actually extremely enviable) task of working out their schedules, we've dug through the near and far corners of this embarrassment of riches to highlight the 15 films we're most anticipating from this year's Toronto International Film Festival. It wasn't an easy choice.

In the week we've had of 2013 so far, we've cast an extensive eye over the films to look forward to over the next 12 months; the indies, the blockbusters, and the ones we're just plain looking forward to. But of course, it's fairly easy for us to forget that some of the films that you guys are looking forward to the most are ones that we caught at various festivals in 2012.

Last week, we took a look at a cool hundred movies on the way over the next twelve months that we're looking forward to, and while some may disappoint, others will surprise and surpass expectations. One of the great pleasures of being a cinema fan is that of discovery; that unknown film that you take a chance on, that blows you away and becomes one of the talking points of the year. Invariably, these discoveries end up coming from the independent and foreign world, and prove to be among the best moments of the cinematic year.

Yesterday, we unveiled our Most Anticipated Films Of 2013 - Part 1, and we think you'll agree there's a promising selection out there. But that's far from all that the next twelve months has to offer, and there's much more on the horizon.

So here we are in 2013. We survived the Mayan apocalypse, and we've made it to the year in which both Kevin Costner's disaster epic "The Postman" and sub-standard John Carpenter sequel "Escape To L.A." were set. And after a strong 2012, which contained some of the most anticipated movies in recent memory, from blockbusters like "Prometheus," "The Avengers," and "The Dark Knight Rises" to new films from Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Kathryn Bigelow, among many others, you might imagine that 2013 would be something of a step down.
