The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival today revealed details of its seven-day confab, featuring the participation of 140 international industry players and 50 hours of talks and meets, as well as the two-day TIFF Doc Conference.

Highlights include a keynote address from Participant Media’s Jeff Skoll and Jim Berk (seen above), and Mogul sessions with Focus Features’ Alison Thomson, Plan B Entertainment’s Dede Gelfond and IMAX’s Greg Foster and Rich Gelfond.

Panels cover a range of relevant industry topics and are grouped under one of seven daily themes: emerging filmmakers, financing, co-production, marketing, the creative process, distribution, and transmedia.

Highlights of the doc confab include: a talk about fair-use issue by Alex Gibney (“The Armstrong Lie”); a keynote conversation with “Capturing the Friedmans” helmer Andrew Jarecki and new revelations about the subject of his controversial doc; a look at MTV World’s new doc series “Rebel World” and its spin-off feature project; a keynote address by distribution strategist Peter Broderick; and sessions on VOD, crowd-funding, deal-making and other hot doc topics.

The Toronto International Film Festival’s industry programming runs Sept. 6 to 12, and the TIFF Doc Conference runs Sept. 10 and 11, 2013.
