TIFF 2013: Docs, Vanguard, City To City, And Cinematheque Programs Announced

Peter Martin, Managing Editor

The Toronto International Film Festival has unleashed more huge gulps of its screening lineup for 2013. This batch includes documentaries, the adventurous Vanguard section, the City to City section, which focuses this year on Athens, Greece. and TIFF Cinematheque, showcasing retrospective screenings.

Among the many, many titles that caught my eye: Frank Pavich's documentary Jodorowsky's Dune will receive its North American premiere, sharing the doc stage with the latest work by Mark Cousins (A Story of Children and Film), Frederick Wiseman (At Berkeley, all about the famed American university), and Errol Morris (The Unknown Known, on former U.S. Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld).

In the Vanguard section, Alejandre Aja's Horns will have its world premiere; it's based on Joe Hill's novel and stars Daniel Radcliffe. Also world premiering: Brillante Mendoza's Sapi, said to be a "caustic cultural satire," and the Texas-set noir We Gotta Get Out of This Place, directed by Simon Hawkins and Zeke Hawkins.

(Thanks to Screen Daily for making this available in an easy-to-read format, based on the press release from the festival.)
