Hot Docs Town Hall: Can Documentary Change the World?



Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema Tue, Oct 18, 2016 5:00 PM


Over the past 23 years, you have played an integral part of Hot Docs’ transformation from a small, local documentary festival to one of the Canada’s top cultural organizations and one of the world’s most important documentary institutions. Over that time, we have screened thousands of transformative documentaries to millions of viewers, raised millions of dollars for documentary production at home and abroad, brought documentary films and related curriculum into the classroom to students across the province and opened the world’s best and biggest documentary-focused cinema.

As we plan for the future, we want to hear from you. How can Hot Docs continue to play a vital role in our great city, the cultural/documentary sphere, globally, and in the day-to-day lives of our audience? This will be an informal discussion among a knowledgeable community of peers. No preparation necessary!
