We've bid farewell to the Great White North for another year — yup, the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival is officially over. In years past, Oscar winners like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" made their international debuts at TIFF. With that in mind, we took in every screening our schedules allowed, looking for the Next Big Thing of this year.
We narrowed the Best of Fest list to 15; They may not be the Oscar nominees of 2013 — though we'd bet cash money some of them are — but they'll be among the best movies you'll see for yourself this year. -- By Kevin Polowy and Brooke Tarnoff Get More »
With films like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" having made their international debuts at the fest, the movies showing this year are among those we can't wait to see this fall — in fact, we listed 20 of them before TIFF even kicked off.
So, how did they fare? Well, here's what the reviewers from our sister site, Film.com, had to say... Get More »
As much as we love all that summer has to offer, fall is where it's at for true cinephiles. The movie lover's season officially kicks off (according to us, anyway) the same day the annual Toronto International Festival launches every year in early September.
As has been the case for several years now, Toronto serves as a platform for studios to launch their Oscar hopefuls and for smaller indies to find a home (and maybe some awards down the line). "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "Precious" and "The Artist" all played at the festival before going on to Oscar glory while films like "Beginners," "Killer Joe" and "Your Sister's Sister," all came into the event without a distributor, and left with one.

Indie comedy, "Imogene" just found its leading man. Word on the New York streets is that Matt Dillon has signed on to co-star in this modern romance.
He joins an A-list cast led by the scene-stealing Kristen Wiig and Oscar-winning Annette Bening, Deadline reports.
Written by Michelle Morgan (who penned the 2008 dramedy "Middle of Nowhere"), the story follows Wigg, a playwright who stages a fake suicide attempt after losing her job, getting evicted from her apartment, and being dumped by her boyfriend—all at once. (Talk about a bad day.) Get More »
Natasha Lyonne's life in the spotlight has been full of highs (both literal and figurative), but in recent years the actress' career has been overshadowed by what can only be described as a messy personal life.
Despite spending the past decade taking on some less-than-memorable film roles in between trips to rehab, it seems as though the onetime indie darling's luck may have changed.
Lyonne, who first earned major recognition for her role as a tortured teen in "Slums of Beverly Hills," has signed on to Kristen Wiig's passion project, "Imogene." Get More »
"If you can't find a good man, raise one."
Coming off of the phenomenal success of her "Bridesmaids," Kristen Wiig is preparing to tackle an invigorating new challenge -- teenage boys!
Sticking with her working formula -- painfully pathetic lady + nutty mom + cute boys = funny -- Wiig will star in the film about a woman who fakes her suicide to get back at an ex, only to end up stuck with the family she has been trying to escape...in New Jersey. That's what we call just desserts. Get More »
Kristen Wiig showed us the challenges of planning -- and executing -- a bachelorette party. Now she'll take on an even greater task: living with her mother.
