David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method, Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz, Guy Maddin's Keyhole and Jean-Marc Vallée's Café de flore were among the high-profile candidates to make the cut, while Nathan Morlando's Edwin Boyd, Guy Édoin's Marecages, Philippe Falardeau's Monseiur Lazhar, Ken Scott's Starbuck, Sebastien Pilote's Le vendeur and Jason Eisener's Hobo With a Shotgun filled out the list.

TIFF also unveiled its top 10 short film selections for the year, which included Michelle Latimer's Choke and Philippe Baylaucq's aesthetically rich Ora from the National Film Board.
