The Hot Docs Festival is going on from April 23rd – May 3rd. Over 200 international documentaries will be screened at various venues around Toronto such as the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema and the TIFF Lightbox. To top it all off, students and seniors can get free admission to any documentary every day before 5:00PM!
On the website they’ve got a highlight list of some notable documentaries that are creating buzz.
One film that caught intern Richard’s attention is titled ‘Rolling Papers’. A documentary about the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and the booming business currently surrounding it.
I’m personally looking forward to Kurt Cobain Documentary titled ‘Montage of Heck’. A film that re-animates Cobain’s creative spirit by investigating his words, artwork, and music. A notable Hot Doc I saw in recent years was titled ’33 Feet From Stardom’.
