Steve Fonyo is the subject of documentary Hurt, which makes its world premiere at TIFF.

With 289 features lined up for TIFF, how's a movie-goer to choose? Through the festival, we'll point you to three films on our radar showing that day.

Monday, Sept. 14

Hurt

Go here for screening details, including additional dates.

In and out of relationships, substance problems, living quarters and legal scraps, former Canadian media hero – and revoked Order of Canada member – Steve Fonyo is a subject fit for anti-heroic down-and-dirty documentary treatment.

Chevalier

Go here for screening details, including additional dates.

Six prosperous Greek men are hanging out on a luxury yacht, spear-fishing, swimming and dining when they decide to play a parlour game in which they will rate each other's behaviour in a variety of contests. Who's courageous enough to give blood? Who makes the most convincing phone call home? And yes, who has the biggest dick.

Spotlight

Go here for screening details, including additional dates.

Spotlight is an assured and tight retelling of the Boston Globe's investigation into the Catholic Church's legacy of child abuse and cover-ups.
