It’s about to get real again: Hot Docs has announced the first titles of its 2021 festival.
The festival of Canadian and international documentary cinema, which opens April 29, will be sticking to streaming for a second year, using the Hot Docs At Home platform launched last spring when the fest reconfigured itself as an online event due to the coronavirus pandemic.
To tease a more comprehensive announcement later this month, Hot Docs announced 15 titles set to screen in this year’s Special Presentations program.
Toronto producer/director Jennifer Holness’s latest documentary, Subjects Of Desire – which explores the intersection of race and cultural standards of beauty – will have its first Canadian screening at Hot Docs just weeks after its world premiere at SXSW.
The festival runs from April 29 to May 9 and festival attendees can stream all films during this time.
