2016 TOfilmfest: Our top 20 picks

Tomorrow, Sunday September 4th at 9AM (EDT), all tickets go on-sale for the Toronto International Film Festival®.  Despite weeks of adding film titles, and searching the internet for reviews/videos/interviews, only now have we put together our top 20 picks.
So fwiw, here they are…

In addition to the buttons available on our website…
search by titlesearch by directorsearch by cast member
search by programsearch by countrysearch by language
search by classificationsearch by ticketsearch by star rating
search by theatresearch by datesearch by Announcment
…many films have a theatrical release already set for the fall, so we've put together
— so you can choose to see these films first, or see them later!  ;-)

Btw, if you're on-the-go, without access to the internet, download a PDF file of the 2016 Official Film Schedule (note there are some changes to the schedule for 2016).

And, if you only have your smartphone, try TIFFwidget — a mobile-friendly website that uses data from TOfilmfest.
