Veterans such as Johnny Depp, Adam Sandler and Julianne Moore are expected to attend the festival alongside stars like Ryan Gosling, Kate Hudson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who co-stars in Looper, the opening night flick).

The festival is also welcoming young actors such as Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Elle Fanning (Super 8) and Logan Lerman, who stars in the hilghy-anticipated Perks of Being a Wallflower alongside Emma Watson and Ezra Miller -- premiering at TIFF.

Some of the filmmakers showcasing world premieres at the festival include Noah Baumbach (Greenberg, The Squid and the Whale), Ben Affleck (The Town, Gone Baby Gone), Yvan Attal (...And They Lived Happily Ever After) and Dustin Hoffman, who’s presenting his directorial debut at TIFF.
