Toronto: Planes, Trains and Automobiles Before the Movies Start

 

Welcome to Fandango’s official coverage of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival!
 
We’re on the ground in the Great White North for the annual celebration of the globe’s finest cinema, where international artists amaze crowds with their latest fares, conjuring a wide range of emotions from movie-savvy crowds. 
 
The TIFF program is divided in various menus that cater to all tastes, from the star-studded Galas to the genre-happy Midnight Madness program. Studios hoping to build Oscar buzz are bringing pictures with serious pedigrees (Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder and Cloud Atlas are atop most everyone’s Must-See lists). At the same time, several films come to Toronto seeking proper distribution, so the offbeat film you manage to see here might never see the light of day beyond the city’s borders. 
 
That’s rare, though. For the most part, TIFF’s schedules are packed with titles you’ll be hearing about for the rest of the year, from Ben Affleck’s thrilling Argo to Keira Knightley’s Anna Karenina – her latest collaboration with Atonement director Joe Wright. 
 
We’ll be here through next week, bringing you daily updates from Toronto so you’ll know which films to mark on your calendar and see when they open in a theater near you. Wednesday is a big travel day, as journalists from around the world trek to TIFF and settle in. Our first movie out of the gate on Thursday is Rust and Bone, which reportedly features a performance by Marion Cotillard that could propel the Dark Knight Rises co-star into the Best Actress race. We shall see. 
 
Keep reading Fandango this week as we bring you the best of the Toronto International Film Fest. Check out our most anticipated films, and tell us below what TIFF film are you most looking forward to?
