The Toronto International Film Festival has added over 40 titles to complete its mammoth and impressive 2012 lineup, which now stands at over 200 films.

The new editions includes films in the Discover and Masters sections, including North American premieres from world-renowned filmmakers Manoel de Oliveira, Michael Haneke, Olivier Assayas, Hong Sang-soo, Cristian Mungi, Bernardo Bertolucci and Abbas Kiarostami in the latter. The Master's program will also include world premieres of new films by Michael Winterbottom, Goran Paskaljevic and Bernard Émond..

The Discovery program, meanwhile, will shine a spotlight on first and second feature films from up-and-coming filmmakers, with 27 feature films. The lineup showcases dynamic films by enterprising directors from around the world including Paraguay, France, Sweden, Estonia, Ivory Coast and Serbia.

"North American audiences have first found films like Athina Rachel Tsangari's Attenberg and Steve McQueen's Hunger in our Discovery programme," said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. "With another strong crop of films this year and two prizes specifically for Discovery filmmakers, Toronto continues to be a prime place for debut films."

Films in the Discovery programme are eligible for two awards: the new Grolsch Film Works Discovery Award that honours a filmmaker in the Discovery programme for "their exceptional journey to date" and that includes a $10,000 cash prize to support the winner’s next project, and the juried International Federation of Film Critics Award (FIPRESCI

Finally, the festival also announced that the TIFF Docs Conference will return for its fourth year as "an intensive showcase for conversations with leaders in the documentary field, world premieres of new films and sneak previews of works-in-progress." This year the conference expands from one to two days (September 10 and 11). Previously open only to TIFF Industry delegates, passes will be on sale to the public for the first time this year.

Attendees will hear from leaders in the world of docs including a keynote address from HBO Documentary Films’ Sheila Nevins, Ken Burns in conversation with Shola Lynch, and world premieres of docs from Jehane Noujaim and Mona Eldaief, and Paul Saltzman, as well sneak peeks from new films by Yung Chang and Patrick Reed.

“TIFF Docs Conference is an annual opportunity to engage with the doc filmmaking community,” said Thom Powers, lead documentary programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival. “We wanted to open our home to growing audiences and industry delegates alike who share our passion for non-fiction filmmaking.”

“We've put a special emphasis on Canadian documentary filmmakers," added Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. "You'll see Canada's strong documentary heritage reflected in new work from veterans like Paul Saltzman and Peter Raymont, as well as newer doc stars like Montreal's Yung Chang.”
