An article on The Playlist speculates that At Any Price may be screened at the Venice Film Festival in August - but they have absolutely nothing to back that up. Anyway, if it happens, that may be our first opportunity to see some reviews and maybe stills/clips.

I could be wrong about this, but isn't the director, Ramin Bahrani, a regular at the Venice Film Festival? If so, then that's probably why At Any Price was mentioned.
All we have is this one little still

According to Variety, Ramin Bahrani's At Any Price will have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival 2012 in Special Presentations. TIFF runs Sep 6-16, 2012.
The official announcement from TIFF with confirmation is in a few hours (their press conference starts at 10am EST today) but Variety spilled the beans a bit early and is a reliable source.
What does that mean for Venice? We will find that out on Thursday but the Variety announcement says it's a world premiere so it looks like it will only play in Toronto and not go to Italy. TIFF is a very prestigious international festival as well, so it's not any concern at all if the movie premieres at TIFF. (Bee)
ETA: The press conference just and ended and while Variety seems to have gotten the movies which premiere in Toronto right, they did make a small mistake with At Any Price. According to the official press release from TIFF, At Any Price will have its North American premiere in Toronto, not its world premiere. Which means it will premiere somewhere else before, most likely in Venice. More about that on Thursday, when they announce their line-up.
ETA 2: First official movie stills
Logline from the TIFF website:
Quote:Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham star in this drama from acclaimed director Ramin Bahrani (Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo), about a rebellious son whose dreams of becoming a professional race-car driver are derailed when his father's farming empire becomes the target of a high-stakes investigation.

The Playlist had some interesting things to say:
"Of all the director/actor pairings of the year, the one between the acclaimed, but so far firmly arthouse-y Ramin Bahrani, the helmer of "Man Push Cart" and "Goodbye Solo," and Zac Efron, fresh-faced star of the "High School Musical" franchise, is one of the most curious. But after festival plaudits and rave reviews, Bahrani seems ready to break out to a wider audience, while Efron, to his credit, is looking to be taken seriously as an adult leading man....
"... A number of other recognizable faces are in the cast, including Heather Graham, Clancy Brown and Kim Dickens, but it's the intriguing, very un-Bahrani-like duo of Efron and Quaid who seem to lead the picture, and with the film set to premiere at Venice before heading to TIFF next month, hopes are certainly high for the film...."

I'm really hoping for good reviews at Venice and TIFF because that could open up so many doors for Zac if it does well. And hopefully the fact that they already have a distributor is a sign that it is really good.

It's not just a distributor, but a very reputable distributor. The fact that a company like Sony Classics picked of AAP is a very encouraging sign.
