The Toronto International Film Festival has added more than 75 new titles to its expansive 2012 smorgasbord. The festival (September 6-16) will close with a Gala presentation of Andrew Williams' "A Song For Marion," starring Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp.

Gala and Special screenings will also be held for Peter Webber's World War II drama "Emperor," David Siegel and Scott McGehee's "What Maisie Knew," Dante Ariola's "Arthur Newman," Valeria Sarmiento's "Lines of Wellington," Lee Daniels' "Paperboy," Susanne Bier's "Love is All You Need," Brian De Palma's "Passion," Walter Salles' "On The Road," Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" and PT Anderson's "The Master," among others.

TIFF titles for their Contemporary World Cinema program range from Argentina and Denmark to Mozambique and Sri Lanka. Among the films are Tony Krawitz's "Dead Europe" (Australia), Benjamín Ávila "Clandestine Childhood" (Argentina/Spain/Brazil), Antoinette Beumer's "Jackie" (The Netherlands) and Ava DuVernay's "Middle of Nowhere" (USA).

The avant-garde Wavelengths program (which has absorbed the former Visions program) adds shorts and features, among them omnibus military doc "Far From Afghanistan" (USA), Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige's "The Lebanese Rocket Society" (Qatar), and Ying Liang's "When Night Falls" (South Korea/China).
