Eighteen Visions for the 2011 film fest

The Visions program at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival brings us 18 films that attempt to 'challenge our notions of mainstream cinema'.

“ALPS” (2011 feature film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos)“CENTURY OF BIRTHING” (2011 feature film directed by Lav Diaz)“CUT” (2011 feature film directed by Amir Naderi)“DREILEBEN - BEATS BEING DEAD” (2011 feature film directed by Christian Petzold)“DREILEBEN - DON'T FOLLOW ME AROUND” (2011 feature film directed by Dominik Graf)“DREILEBEN - ONE MINUTE OF DARKNESS” (2011 feature film directed by Christoph Hochhäusler)“FABLE OF THE FISH” (2011 feature film directed by Adolfo Alix Jr.)“HOUSE OF TOLERANCE” (2011 feature film directed by Bertrand Bonello)“KOTOKO” (2011 feature film directed by Shinya Tsukamoto)“THE LAST CHRISTEROS” (2011 feature film directed by Matias Meyer)“THE LONELIEST PLANET” (2011 feature film directed by Julia Loktev)“MONSTERS CLUB” (2011 feature film directed by Toshiaki Toyoda)“THE MOUNTAIN” (2010 feature film directed by Ghassan Salhab)“MUSHROOMS” (2011 feature film directed by Vimukthi Jayasundara)“PLAY” (2011 feature film directed by Ruben Östlund)“PORFIRIO” (2011 feature film directed by Alejandro Landes)“RANDOM” (2011 short film directed by Debbie Tucker Green)“THE RIVER USED TO BE A MAN” (2011 feature film directed by Jan Zabeil)“SWIRL” (2011 feature film directed by Helvecio Marins Jr., Clarissa Campolina)“THIS SIDE OF RESURRECTION” (2009 feature film directed by Joaquim Sapinho)

The Visions and Vanguard programs are often closely associated, but here's the difference:
films in the Visions program try to challenge the audio-visual form of cinema (by altering the process of film-making, or playing with the art of storytelling) — whereas Vanguard films present challenging content (intended to be bold, provocative, and often defying conventions).
See you at the fest!
