TIFF 2013 red carpet highlights

The Toronto International Film Festival opened on Sept. 5 with the premiere of the WikiLeaks-themed thriller The Fifth Estate, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten, to name a few.

As the 38th annual version of the film festival gets underway, star-spotters and cinemaphiles alike are offered a rare chance to see and, as was the case with Brad Pitt's surprise arrival on the red carpet for 12 Years a Slave on Friday, get an autograph or pose for a photo with their favourite screen stars.

Throughout the festival, will be covering the premieres of the films with the most buzz (such as The Fifth Estate, 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and Prisoners) and posting photos from the red carpet galas. From Brad Pitt, to Denis Villeneuve to Keanu Reeves, the top images from the red carpet will land here. We'll also be bringing you coverage of some impressive emerging talents.

The Toronto International Film Festival continues through Sept. 15.
