X+Y
In 2007, director Morgan Matthews delivered his TV documentary "Beautiful Young Minds," which centered on a group of students participating in the International Mathematics Olympiad. Among the nods it received was a BAFTA TV nomination for Best Single Documentary, and now Matthews hopes the feature version of that story will get even more attention.

For most people, getting the opportunity to show your movie at TIFF is a blessing, giving your movie a chance to court international press, while screening for enthusiastic audiences and critics from around the globe. Now add in the factor of having Arnold Schwarzenegger in a lead role in a zombie movie, you would think that boost might be helpful rather than a hindrance. But it appears that's not the case.

Still Alice
Looking at the slate for the Toronto International Film Festival, it can be easy to overlook smaller movies that may not have the same buzz as higher profile titles. But if you take a closer look, you'll find films with big names just waiting to be discovered, and one to keep an eye on is "Still Alice."

The Connection
There are few films about the battle between Johnny Law and drug dealers that can measure up to "The French Connection," so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. That seems to be Cédric Jimenez's operating principle, as his forthcoming "The Connection" is a Euro flavored take on William Friedkin's classic. The movie is headed to the Toronto International Film Festival for its world premiere, and the first international teaser trailer is here.

"Pride" may not be on your radar, but it should be. It debuted this spring at the Cannes' Directors' Fortnight where the film swept us off our feet, with Oliver Lyttelton calling it in his review, "a prime display of a rousing crowd-pleaser done right." The movie is headed stateside to the Toronto International Film Festival where it will make its North American premiere, and with trailers and clips now online, there's no better way to see what it's all about.

While there has been a lot of insider debate this year about the Toronto International Film Festival's new rule regarding world premieres and how it will affect their lineup (or not), Toronto will definitely have one thing the rest of the fall festivals won't: Bill Murray Day.

Kill The Messenger
The Toronto International Film Festival made its final announcement this morning and so the fall film festival circuit geography is basically set, other than waiting for the day-of Telluride announcement, which has already been largely telegraphed by the status of TIFF and the New York Film Festival and whatever Fantastic Fest has left to offer, of course.

Christian Petzold Phoenix
If you've been paying attention to world cinema at all, Christian Petzold is likely a name known to you. The filmmaker broke out in a big way with his 2008 feature "Jerichow," and his powerful 2012 effort "Barbara" only cemented his reputation. Now the director is back with "Phoenix," and the first trailer has arrived.
