The Toronto International Film Festival will unveil a new Vanguard section at this year's festival, offering a program of films that "are stylistically bold, structurally playful and appeal to adventurous, risk-taking audiences." Announcing the new section today, organizers also unveiled a eleven of the films set to screen in the program. On tap so far are the world premieres of Geoffrey Wright's "Macbeth" (Australia), Pascal Arnold and Marc Barr's "Chacun Sa Nuit" (France), Antti-Jussi Annila's "Jade Warrior" (Finland/China/Estonia), and John Barker's "Bunny Chow" (South Africa). In a statement, festival co-director Noah Cowan said:
"The Festival has felt the need for some time to establish a programme for 'early adopters'," explained festival co-director Noah Cowan, in a statement, "people who delight in movies that push the envelopes of technology, culture, sexuality and cinema itself. These films are edgy, irreverent, definitely sexy, and have a palpable, youthful zing."
