Toronto International Film Festival 2013 announces amazing lineup

Unfortunately, I will not be attending the Toronto International Film Festival this year. But with the absolutely amazing list of titles that have been announced today, which festival director Cameron Bailey is only 1/4 of the lineup, I really wish I was there. Last year had a great group of title including Looper, Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, The Master, Anna Karenina, Cloud Atlas, The Place Beyond The Pines, The Sessions and many more. But this year's line-up could be considered more impressive. Here are a list of the highlights of the lineup in the categories Tiff has put them in.

In addition to that spectacular list of titles were smaller films like the Palme d'Or winner Blue is the Warmest Color, Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi, David Gordon Green's Joe, and Atom Egoyan's The Devil's Knot.

It's a crazy list of titles and it's just a quarter of what's to come. Look for a lot more in the coming weeks.
