Hot Docs begins!
I expect most people if forced to write a sentence that proclaimed the start of a film festival consisting of nothing but documentaries would not likely end the sentence with an exclamation mark.
Yeah, well tough. I love a good documentary. I previously posted about 40 odd ones that I really like, so I'm hoping to discover a few more in the next week or two. I had been thinking of going to the Toronto Hot Docs Festival for the last 5 years now, but there was always some reason I couldn't make it (you know, silly reasons like not buying any tickets...). This year though, I happened to stumble across a link to the hot docs site before the full schedule was up and they had a sampling of titles that would be featured. When I realized that I could easily pick ten features just from that early list, I figured this was the year to finally pull up my socks and book something.
I picked the following 10 films that I'll catch between April 19th and April 29th:
In The Shadow Of The Moon
Scott Walker: 30th Century Man
Losers And Winners
The Foreign Eye
I could easily have picked another 10...
