Toronto 37 has rounded out its 2012 festival titles, adding 40-plus titles to its massive slate. New films announced in the Masters program include the North American premieres of Michael Haneke's "Amour," Olivier Assayas's "Something in the Air," Abbas Kiarostami's "Like Someone in Love" and the world premieres of Michael Winterbottom's "Everyday" and Goran Paskaljevic's "When Day Breaks." The Discovery program adds twenty-seven new titles from up-and-coming filmmakers from around the world, including world premieres of Pablo Berger's "Blancanieves," Ramaa Mosley's "The Brass Teapot," "Mikael Marcimain's "Call Girl" and Rola Nashaf's "Detroir Unleaded."

The Mavericks program will feature a range of conversations topics and appearances by Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem and Jackie Chan. Journalists are already tumbling iover each other to gain access to the various folks turning up in Toronto.

We're going to talk to Alex Gibney about his Vatican doc, Marina Zenovich on Roman Polanski, Brian DePalma and his cast on "Passion," and have requested interviews with Ben Affleck ("Argo"), Tom Hanks as well as the Wachowski siblings (who rarely give interviews but are eager to push forward personal project "Cloud Atlas"), Helen Hunt and John Hawkes of Sundance Fox Searchlight pick-up "The Sessions," an Oscar contender, Paul Thomas Anderson of "The Master," Joe Wright and Keira Knightley of "Anna Karenina," Jacques Audiard and Marion Cotillard of "Rust & Bone," Michael Haneke of "Amour," Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt of opening nighter "Looper," and Mads Mikkelsen of "A Royal Affair" and "The Hunt." What we don't get in Toronto, our team will get in Venice, Telluride or later in LA. It's a long process. And we've got to see some of this wide panoply of movies first.

Docs will be highlighted in a keynote address by HBO Documentary Films star Sheila Nevins as well as in conversation with Ken Burns and Shola Lynch. The doc conference will showcase new works with an emphasis on Canadian filmmakers. TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey states: "You'll see Canada's strong documentary heritage reflected in new work from veterans like Paul Saltzman and Peter Raymont, as well as newer doc stars like Montreal's Yung Chang."

Here's more on the recent additions; the complete festival line up is here.
