Arcade Fire Toronto Island Concert

New Arcade Fire doc to premiere at TIFF 2015

With fewer than 30 days to go until TIFF, the full list of documentaries, Midnight Madness films and Vanguard screenings is finally out and it's one that you should probably start getting excited about.

Arcade Fire fans should keep their eyes peeled for tickets to the world premiere of The Reflektor Tapes, a doc directed by Kahlil Joseph that follows the band as they create Reflektor, their most recently released album.

Other docs getting world premieres include a film on the January 2015 terrorist attacks in France called Je Suis Charlie and the Malala Yousafzai profile He Named Me Malala.

The popular, and wildly fun Midnight Madness screenings will kick off with Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room starring Patrick Stewart and Anton Yelchin.

If that's not enough, Toronto-based filmmaker Nick DenBoer has created a remix of The Shining with Davy Force. It's called The Chickening, and yes, it features poultry. DenBoer's short, five minute film will get its world premiere right before the Green Room.

Which docs and Midnight Madness films are you excited for? Let us know in the comments.
