Documentaries by Barbara Kopple, Amy Berg, Morgan Neville, Davis Guggenheim, Gillian Armstrong,Frederick Wiseman and a posthumous film by Sydney Pollack will screen at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival next month.

As the festival prepares to mark its 40th year, internal programming changes have allowed documentary programmer Thom Powers to up the number of films playing in the TIFF Docs program from 21 to 31 – the most docs to screen at TIFF in eight years.

Of the films announced today, 12 are world premieres, five are international premieres, three are North American premieres and six are Canadian premieres. The number of docs with female directors or codirectors is higher than ever, according to Powers, at 13 out of 31. 

The festival’s guest list will be unveiled on August 25, but it’s a safe bet that Yo-Yo Ma will be on hand at TIFF as he and the Silk Road Ensemble are performing at Toronto’s Massey Hall in the middle of the festival on September 15.

There are a wide variety of music-focused documentaries at the fest, including Sydney Pollack's Aretha Franklin study Amazing Grace, Amy Berg's Janis: Little Blue Girl, Barbara Kopple's Miss Sharon Jones!, Morgan Neville's The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble and Kahlil Joseph's The Reflektor Tapes.
