DOC SCREENS Screening of the best films from the last 3 years of the INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY CHALLENGE
The International Documentary Challenge is a fun and innovative competition that pushes filmmakers’ skills to the limit. If you’re new to the idea, it’s very simple: Filmmakers from around the world are given a genre (Character Study, Music, 1st Person, etc.) and a theme (such as “Change”.) Participants then have 5 days to develop, produce and edit a 4 to 7 minute non-fiction film. The top films, as determined by judges, premiere at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto. The result is an exhilarating five days for the filmmakers, and, as the films reveal, a joy for the audiences at Hot Docs and beyond.
