Hot Docs Picks 27 Projects for Annual Forum

Hot Docs has released the names of the 27 projects slated to take part in this year’s Hot Docs Forum. This year’s crop were selected from 193 submissions and represent 14 different countries.

“The 2011 Hot Docs Forum responds to continuing shifts and changes in the documentary industry,” said Elizabeth Radshaw, Hot Docs Forum and Market Director, “but what remains the same is the opportunity for some intense and intimate networking with key industry executives. In addition to matching exceptional international content with funding and support, the Hot Docs Forum offers a space for selected projects and production companies to showcase the many unique faces of the documentary form for both broadcast and non-broadcast funding sources.”
