Hill Of Freedom
South Korean director and festival regular Hong Sang-Soo’s latest film “Hill of Freedom” is slated to screen at three of the major fall-season festivals —the Venice Film Festival, which kicked off yesterday, the Toronto International Film Festival, starting next week, and the New York International Film Festival in late September. The filmmaker, who typically specializes in intimate portraits of confused, lovelorn souls, sticks to his wheelhouse here, telling the story of a young Japanese man who travels to South Korea to find a woman he loves who won’t answer his letters.

Hyena
London's seedy nightlife, grimy pubs, and various lowlifes have provided the British crime thriller genre no shortage of classics over the years. And looking to join the ranks of "Get Carter" and "The Long Good Friday" is Gerard Johnson's "Hyena," set to make its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. We have an exclusive clip that takes you inside the film's milieu.

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.

Far From Men, Viggo Mortensen
You may have noticed a change in actor Viggo Mortensen in the last few years. The actor’s last major studio effort was “A History of Violence” in 2005 and even then it was a David Cronenberg project. Aside from mini-major studio projects like The Weinstein Company's "The Road" and Sony Pictures Classics "A Dangerous Method" (both of them still relatively small, limited release pictures), the actor has steered away from major studio work. And in recent years, that’s been even more pronounced.

"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.

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.

It's just two weeks to go until the Toronto International Film Festival, and organizers are putting the final touches on the lineup. Sorry, still no sign of Terrence Malick.
