The fall movie season has officially begun. Thursday marks the start of the Toronto International Film Festival, which features everything from big name Oscar contenders like 'Moneyball' and 'The Descendants' to highly anticipated indies like 'Shame' and 'Take Shelter' among the almost 300 films that will screen there over the course of 11 days. The fest -- which has become one of the biggest in the world because of its Oscar credibility ('The King's Speech' and 'The Hurt Locker' received major pushes there) -- will come to a close on Sept. 18.

Check back to Moviefone on the daily for all the latest updates from the 36th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, and head over to the TIFF website to find out more about what's playing and when.
