"Still Walking Hirokazu" will make its international debut and be showcased as a special presentation. "All Around Us" by Ryosuke Hashiguchi also will have its international premiere in Toronto.

Mamuro Oishii's "The Skycrawlers" and Takeshi Kitano's "Achilles and the Tortoise" will both be screened for the first time in North America.
