At a press conference this morning in Toronto, organizers of the Toronto International Film Festival unveiled a lineup of 335 films from 52 countries that will screen at next month's event (September 8-17, 2005). Director & CEO Piers Handling, Festival Co-Director Noah Cowan, and Managing Director Michèle Maheux rounded out a list of 109 world premieres, among the 256 features, that will screen at the event. They also touted 84% of the feature lineup as world, international, or North American premieres. 67 films this year are from first time filmmakers.

In recent weeks, much of the lineup had been announced, but today organizers fleshed out the program and unveiled a number of new anticipated titles for the fest roster. [ Previous stories are available in indieWIRE's special Toronto '05 section. ]

The 2005 Toronto International Film Festival will open with Deepa Mehta's "Water," described as being "set in pre-independent India against the backdrop of Mahatma Gandhi's rise to power, the film tells the story of eight-year old child-bride Chuyia, who is exiled to a widow's ashram after her husband dies. Organizers confirmed that David J. Burke's "Edison" would close the festival this year. The film stars Kevin Spacey, Morgan Freeman, Justin Timberlake, LL Cool J, and Dylan McDermott, and is described as a "darkly suspenseful and action-packed tale (that) follows a young journalist's attempt to expose a violent ring of corrupt policemen."

The festival will unspool throughout Toronto, presenting films in 14 programs and on some 23 movie screens, offering 26,505 minutes of film. More than 305,000 admissions are counted annually from both public and industry attendees combined, according to organizers.

Among the titles added to the festival's Gala section today were Stephen Frears' "Mrs. Henderson Presents," Guy Ritchie's "Revolver," Stanley Tong's "The Myth," Tommy Lee Jones' "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada," and Richard Sheperd's "The Matador."
