TORONTO -- Post-Gazette movie editor Barbara Vancheri's first starry encounter in her week at the Toronto International Film Festival was with Terrence Howard, who can be seen on screen in "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and stars next in the dark thriller "Prisoners." That was just for starters.

At a press conference today, she had in her sights David Cronenberg, director of "Videodrome," "Dead Ringers," "M. Butterfly," "A History of Violence," "Eastern Promises" and "A Dangerous Method," just to name a few, and the subject of TIFF's first original touring exhibition. She writes: The films will be represented, of course, along with costumes, behind-the-scenes footage and props such as the typewriter that morphs into a winged bug in "Naked Lunch." It sat at the table at this morning's press conference announcing "The Cronenberg Project." The Canadian-born director noted, "These things aren't made to last. It's amazing how good this looks.
