Hot Docs Unveils Enormous 2017 Lineup
Toronto is set for another heavy dose of reality when the annual Hot Docs festival returns for its 2017 edition. Today, we've learned the 230 documentaries that were prepared for the event.

There's an overwhelming amount of films and special events taking place at the festival, which runs from April 27 to May 7. The festival has also ensured that 48 percent of its programming is work from female filmmakers. 

"The Hot Docs programming team has scoured the globe to bring the finest documentaries to Toronto audiences from a Festival high of 58 countries," Hot Docs director of programming Shane Smith said in a statement. "As our world shifts in startling new ways, Hot Docs is committed to showcasing those films that tackle topics of global importance: from environmental issues and human rights, to international conflict. We also seek out masterful documentary storytelling in all its forms, from unheralded stories of unique individuals to quirky subjects that really are stranger than fiction. We're very excited to share this year's outstanding program with Toronto audiences."
