Noticeably absent in the guest list is Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie, who stars in the concert documentary Long Time Running. His bandmates Rob Baker, Paul Langlois, Gord Sinclair and Johnny Fay are slated to attend, as are directors Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier. The doc follows the band in the wake of Downie's public announcement that he has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

Despite the celebrity heft, the festival is considerably smaller this year.

Organizers say the slates includes 255 features, down from 296 last year, and 84 shorts, down from 101 last year.

The slim-down includes Canadian films, with just 28 homegrown features making the cut, including co-productions. Last year saw 38 features. The number of Canadian shorts is down to 29, from 38 last year.
