While most of the industry views the Toronto International Film Festival as a place to showcase films for acquisition or Oscar runs, festival organizers always stock the program with homegrown films. The festival just announced that part of the program, setting a Gala premiere for the Ken Scott-directed drama Starbuck, about a 42-year-old who discovers he’s the biological father of 533 children; Breakaway, a Robert Lieberman-directed hockey drama that features Rob Lowe in its cast; Keyhole, the world premiere of the latest film by Guy Maddin, a gangsters-meets-ghosts sonata that stars Jason Patric; the Jean-Marc Vallee-directed Cafe de Flore; the Michael Dowse-directed hockey comedy Goon that stars Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel and Liev Schreiber; and the Mary Harron-directed The Moth Diaries. The fest previously announced Canadian galas for David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method and Sara Polley’s Take This Waltz.
