The Riot Club
Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s has a zig-zagging trajectory. Her debut "Italian for Beginners" was an inventive and populist take on the Dogme 95 manifesto via a romantic comedy which won several plaudits including the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2001. She made a few well-received films since, but it was 2009’s “An Education” that dropped the filmmaker on the global map in a big way. She stumbled with the mostly tone dead romantic dramedy "One Day" starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, but critical redemption is right around with her latest film “The Riot Club.”

Ned Rifle, Hal Hartley, Aubrey Plaza
In 1997, Hal Hartley released "Henry Fool," one of the best films of his career, but no one seemed to notice, even though it won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes. But Hartley knew he had something with the characters and world he created and in 2007 he dropped a sequel, "Fay Grim." It was far less satisfying than its predecessor, but now in 2014 he's capping the trilogy with "Ned Rifle," and hopefully it will close the series on an up note.

Pasolini, Dafoe
Willem Dafoe as Pier Paolo Pasolini? In a film directed by Abel Ferrara? Do we need to say more? Nope. Here's the synopsis for this one making its North American premiere in Toronto: Rome: on the night of November 2, 1975, the great Italian poet and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini is murdered. Pasolini is the symbol of an art that's fighting against the power. His writings are scandalous, and his films are persecuted by the censors; many people love him and many hate him. The day of his death, Pasolini spends his last hours with his beloved mother and later with his dearest friends, until he finally goes out into the night in his Alfa Romeo in search of adventure in the eternal city. At dawn Pasolini is found dead on a beach in Ostia on the outskirts of the city. In a film dreamlike and visionary, blending reality and imagination, it reconstructs the last day in the life of this great poet.

Pawn Sacrifice
Furrowed brows, bad suits, worse haircuts—it can only mean one thing: chess. And that game of mental strategy is at the center of "Pawn Sacrifice," which heads to Toronto to make its World Premiere.
