It's the time of year where we keep a close eye on the TIFF site as news and more titles are released all the time, including todays announcement of 8 more titles, 4 Galas and 4 Special Presentations.
The Gala titles include two sport films with the upcoming UK football film The Damned United starring Martin Sheen (see trailer) and Dil Bole Hadippa which is a musical romantic comedy in the world of cricket and a woman who disguises herself as a man to play on the team.
