The Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival currently has bragging rights on this fair continent: they’re the biggest documentary festival in all of North America, and they welcome film entries from pretty much all over the globe. The Festival itself takes place later next year beginning [ April 30th ] before closing up on [ May 6th, 2001 ] . But what you need to know here and now is that Hot Docs is accepting film and video submissions until their deadline on [ December 14th, 2000 ] . That’s right, this Thursday.
Hot Docs wants documentaries of all lengths, as in shorts, mid-length pieces and features, and on all subject matter. They don’t make you submit under any particular genre category, so if you’re unsure if you’ve got a “historical scientific” piece or a “narrative, non-local arts” doc, it doesn’t matter.
But you should definitely know if your work fits under one of three Festival categories: Canadian Spectrum, International Showcase, and National Spotlight. For more on the above, as well as submission information and a history of the event, check out the comprehensive [ Hot Docs site. ]
