10th Anniversary of Peter Howell's CHASING THE BUZZ

Once again, we're very happy to be invited by Peter Howell, Toronto Star movie critic, for his annual Chasing the Buzz poll – celebrating it's 10th anniversary!
A panel of critics, programmers, and movie-buffs, name the 3 films they are most looking forward to.
Peter Howell's "Ten bee-utiful years of great TIFF buzz" will be published as the entertainment section cover-story, for tomorrow's Toronto Star (Saturday Septmeber 4, 2010).

Here are our top 3 picks:
  1. “CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS” (2010 3-D feature documentary film directed by Werner Herzog) Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Werner Herzog
    “Colin ‘Midnight Madness’ Geddes brought the first 3-D film to the festival last year, and now doc programmer Thom Powers brings us Werner Herzog in 3-D.”

  2. “THE SLEEPING BEAUTY” (2010 feature film directed by Catherine Breillat) The Sleeping Beauty, Catherine Breillat
    “I debated with French auteur/provocateur Catherine Breillat over Anatomy of Hell in 2004, but anything she brings to the screen remains a must-see.”

  3. “SUBMARINE” (2010 feature film directed by Richard Ayoade) Submarine, Richard Ayoade
    “Richard Ayoade, music video director, talented comedy-writer, and very funny actor (‘Moss’ from the U.K.’s Channel4 The IT Crowd) helms his first feature film.”
