TIFF, 2014
With the first wave of titles announced last week, the Toronto International Film Festival continues to add to its 2014 slate, unveiling the lineups for various special programs today. 

Two of the more high profile World Premieres announced today come courtesy of Kevin Smith and Michael Winterbottom. The former will screen "Tusk," the first installment of his planned horror trilogy, as part of the Midnight Madness lineup, while the latter's Amanda Knox inspired "The Face Of An Angel" will screen in the Masters section. On the auteur front, TIFF has secured the North American premieres for both Jean-Luc Godard's "Goodbye To Language 3D" and Roy Andersson's "A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence."

There's much more to discover, so check out the new additions below. TIFF runs from September 4-14.
