The Wind Rises

The Movie Network is showing what it calls “Festival Favourites” up until Sept. 20 in honour of the 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival. Sunday’s offering was shown at TIFF 2013 and nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at the 2014 Academy Awards. From director Hayao Miyazaki, this Japanese film tells the story of Jiro Horikoshi, one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers. (TMN at 6:20)

I Am Cait

It’s season finale time for this docu-series about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition from male to female, which explains why Jenner has been hitting the interview circuit in the last week. In the final episode, Jenner starts the process to officially change her name and gender. (E! at 8)

Canada’s Weekend of Stars

You’ve probably noticed that Toronto is crawling with A-list Hollywood types now that TIFF is underway. ET Canada presents its first ever prime-time TIFF special with interviews from the red carpet and an inside look at TIFF central. (Global at 9:30)

Project Greenlight

If you have a hankering to know all the ins and outs of making a movie, you might like this docu-series executive-produced by buddies and movies stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Back after a 12-year hiatus, it follows a first-time director who wins a digital competition to make a movie for HBO. We see the process from pre-production and casting through principal photography and post-production, with Affleck and Damon popping in from time to time to offer moral support. (HBO at 10)

Doll & Em

The gentle comedy starring Dolly Wells (Bridget Jones’s Diary) and Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom) as fictionalized versions of themselves is back for a second season. This time around, the pair write an off-Broadway play and even manage to convince Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler) and Olivia Wilde (House) to star in it, but the project is threatened when Em is cast in a Hollywood action movie. (HBO at 10:30)
