With Tuesday's additions, thirteen titles joined the festival's Masters section, joining previously announced titles, "Hard Core Logo II" (Bruce McDonald), "Pina" (Wim Wenders) and "This is Not a Film" (Jafar Panahi).

Toronto's Mavericks series gives audiences the chance to hear from notable newsmakers from around the world as they share anecdotes and engage in conversations about their latest projects. Among the notables this year are Francis Ford Coppola, Deepa Mehta, Albert Maysles, Bradley Kaplan, Jonathan Demme, Tamer Ezzat and Ayten Amin; actors Christopher Plummer and Tilda Swinton; author Salman Rushdie; President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed; musician Neil Young; and Sony Pictures Classics founders Michael Barker and Tom Bernard.

"This is most ambitious Mavericks section weve ever presented with movie-making legends, timely topics, celebrated artists from music and literature and even a sitting President," commented Thom Powers, Toronto International Film Festival Mavericks programmer in a statement. "This diverse group of guests will have audiences talking for months to come."

TIFF's Discovery section spotlights first and second feature filmmakers from upcoming filmmakers. This year's lineup includes 25 features making their world, International or North American debuts in Toronto, including work from Iceland, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Russia and South Korea.

Toronto's Free Programming spotlights an array of work and conversational events. The World Premiere of Mark Cousins' epic 15-hour documentary "The Story of Film: An Odyssey" will screen throughout the ten-day event.

"The free festival programming we are presenting honours the Festival's tradition of celebrating filmmakers and film. Among them the important work of Cousins, Panahi and Mirtahmasb will offer audiences a window into the history and current situation of artists and cinema around the world," noted Piers Handling, Director and CEO, TIFF in a statement.
