What Remains of Us: A documentary by Francois Prevost and Hugo Latulippe about a young refugee in Quebec who returns to her native Tibet with a message from the Dalai Lama.

"The spectrum and scope of films on the list shows a new energy and continued vibrance within the Canadian film industry," said Piers Handling, director and CEO of the Toronto International Film Festival Group. "Our established filmmakers on the list display an impressive range and cinematic vision in their work."

The list was unveiled at a Tuesday night reception hosted by director Guy Maddin and actor Arsinee Khanjian. All 10 titles will be screened at Cinematheque Ontario from Jan. 28 to Feb. 5, complete with panel discussions and Q-As.
