TIFF 2016 ROUNDS OUT ITS SELECTION WITH DOCS, MIDNIGHT MADNESS & VANGUARD


The Toronto International Film Festival has unveiled another massive slate of new titles for its 2016 edition, due to take place between the 8th and the 18th of September. Joining some already-announced films in all three sections, Documentaries, Midnight Madness and Vanguard have all filled out their full lineups. Steve James, Errol Morris and Werner Herzog bring new works to the Docs strand, Paul Schrader and Adam Wingard, with his hotly-anticipated Blair Witch film, will show in Midnight Madness, and Vanguard boasts Ana Lily Amirpour - also showing in competition at Venice - and Nacho Vigalondo's Colossal with Anne Hathaway. And the TIFF Cinematheque lineup has also been finished off with a terrific batch of classic films.
