Film festival season is packed with new -- but not always noteworthy -- movies. Here's some of our favorites that are coming to theaters soon.

Fall is film festival crazy with both the Telluride Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. Some of the films on display are indie efforts that may never hit your local cinemas, but there are plenty of big stars to be spotted on the film festival circuit.

Here are some of the most interesting to come out of Telluride and Toronto this year -- all of which you're likely to be seeing in theaters soon and many of which are already popping up in conversation about next year's Oscar-winners.


Rosewater


Release date: November 7. Stars: Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal, Shohreh Aghdashloo. Director: Jon Stewart.


Remember when John Oliver took over hosting duties for The Daily Show back in 2013? He did it so TDS regular Jon Stewart could go make Rosewater, a drama based on the real arrest of journalist Maziar Bahri in Iran. Part of the evidence used against Bahri? An interview he did with The Daily Show which was said to prove he was in contact with an American spy.
