Hot Docs 2012 Line Up Announced! Here are 10 Films I’m Immediately Excited For.

Hot Docs

The only thing better than the Hot Docs Film Festival is the Hot Dogs Film Festival. Unfortunately, the Hot Dogs Film Festival doesn’t exist, so let’s talk about the Hot Docs Film Festival. I’m never disappointed by the selection of films at Hot Docs and this year looks like it’s going to be a great one. First off, I just wanted to give a big shout out to this year’s new festival director (and past Documentary Blog writer) Charlotte Cook! The line up looks awesome and I thought I would point out ten films that immediately stood out as must-see’s for me. Like most festivals, it will require some time with the programme guide and some suggestions from trusty worthy documentary fans before I finalize the rest of my list. You can find the full schedule of films over at the Hot Docs Film Festival website.
