Water Docs Film Festival

March 29 - April 2, 2017

The curtains have closed on the 2017 festival at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema and OISE. It was a fascinating program of films on issues facing global and local water systems. After each screening was a live Q&A, with audience questions to filmmakers, activists, artists and other related speakers. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Here's a trailer from the films we showed at the 6th annual Water Docs Film Festival in March 2017. For trailers of many of the films, see the festival schedule. 

A huge THANK YOU! to all our great volunteers and sponsors who made Water Docs 2017 possible!

The Great Lakes Water Walk

We'll shortly be announcing the plans from a coalition of Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners for the Ontario150 Great Lakes Water Walk.

Led by Anishinaabek Elder Josephine Mandamin, the September 24 event will draw many thousands of Canadians from all walks of life for a trek across Toronto's waterfront, ending in a special blessing – the first step toward an annual National Day of Walking for the Water. 


It will be a walk of inspiration, reconciliation and hope.

Watch this space for the date of the announcement celebration. You'll enjoy short documentaries, a talk by Grandmother Josephine Mandamin and much more.

Watch this short introductory video to the Water Walk.
