The Hank Williams biopic "I Saw The Light," the trans tale "About Ray" and the fact-based Dan Rather story "Truth" will be among the movies world-premiering at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.
Organizers revealed the screenings as part of a last round of announcements for the September fest.
Gaby Dellal's "Ray" centers on several generations on one family, including the titular character, a girl who decides to transition to a male; the film stars Elle Fanning and Susan Sarandon.
Meanwhile, Rob Reiner will also unveil "Bring Charlie," a film about two teenagers in rehab that is inspired by true events involving Reiner's son Nick, who co-wrote the script.
Paco Cabezas' crime caper "Mr. Right" will close the festival.
Catherine Hardwicke's female-friendship tale "Miss You Already" will also make its global debut.
And David Gordon Green’s “Our Brand Is Crisis,” the South American political drama remade from a well-regarded documentary, will also make its world premiere at the festival.
The world premieres are notable given Toronto's insistence that the movies not screen at the preceding Telluride Film Festival if they're to nab a major venue in the fest's all-important first weekend.
Organizers also said Tuesday that the festival will spotlight work originating from London as part of its annual program showcasing the cinema of one international city.
Toronto, which kicks off Sept. 10, is a key time for movies looking for a big fall commercial or awards run, with works hoping to gain traction before rolling out more broadly in the following months.
