DAILY | Toronto 2012 | Index

While this year’s Toronto International Film Festival will be presenting a good number of world premieres between September 6 and 16, it’ll also be giving North American audiences a first look at several films from Berlin, Cannes, and Locarno—as well as Venice and Telluride, special cases since Venice and Toronto overlap for a few days and Telluride happens the weekend before Toronto opens. So, in short, titles turn to links taking you to entries rounding up reviews from either Venice or Telluride and Toronto or Toronto exclusively; and if an earlier festival is named, that link will take you to reviews gathered at the time. In the end, it’s a lot less confusing than it sounds.
