Okay, movie lovers — ready for another year of great films and gripping conversation? As the Toronto International Film Festival rolls out, Shad's keen to discuss some of this 2015's most interesting projects. 

Our stellar lineup of guests, so far, includes:

Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club). The Quebec director's new film, Demolition, stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a grieving widower.
Deepa Mehta, whose stylish Beeba Boys gangster flick explores the violent underworld of Southeast Asian gangs in Vancouver. 

French film star Julie Delpy, who has a lot to say about love and dating in her sharp new farce Lolo
Bollywood star Irrfan Khan had a big summer as the star of Jurassic World. Now he's back in India with the true story Guilty, which depicts a double-murder case that shocked the world. 
Brie Larson. She's had great smaller parts in 21 Jump Street, Trainwreck and The Gambler, but her new starring role in Room — based on the book by Irish-Canadian writer Emma Donoghue — is being hailed as a breakthrough, and a serious Oscar contender. 
Paul Gross is back as a writer-director-star in Hyena Road, a drama that looks at the long-term effects of violence on Canadian veterans home from Afghanistan. 
World-famous performance artist Laurie Anderson reflects on her inventive new documentary Heart of a Dog, which she made after the death of her husband, Lou Reed, and her beloved rat terrier, Lolabelle. 
Oscar winner Jeremy Irons drops in to discuss The Man Who Knew Infinity, an inspirational biopic about an Indian mathematician who revolutionized the field.
