The 2006 TIFF Line-up Is Here!

Pan's Labyrinth - Guillermo del Toro
Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) just announced the complete film line-up for this year’s festival — all 352 of them. There are plenty of gems throughout the listing, but here are a few that I’m particularly excited about (those in bold are films that I’m really excited about):

Many of the films listed above are films that I’ve been waiting to see for almost a year now. Others are films that I’ve picked solely on the strength of the director, even though I know next to nothing about the film itself (for example, Jia Zhiangke’s Dong). And others are films that I just have a gut feeling about, even though I could be very wrong.

The list is, of course, far from comprehensive. I’m sure that other films will edge some of these out when I find out a bit more about them. But whatever happens, I think it’s safe to say that I will be getting precious little sleep for the week and a half that I’m in Toronto. And I can’t wait.
