Hot Docs Preview: 12 Trailers and Some Early Reviews


The 2010 Hot Docs Film Festival kicked off tonight in Toronto with opening night screenings of Babies and Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, and although we’ll have some reviews coming over the next week or so, I thought I’d post a quick reminder about the festival for people who might be in the area and thinking about attending. There is a lot of great stuff to see, and some of the screenings are already selling out so don’t wait too long to buy tickets!

You can see the full schedule on the Hot Docs website, but in the meantime I’ll also direct your attention to some early reviews / previews courtesy of Charlotte at The Documentary Blog:

Stay tuned to The Documentary Blog for more coverage throughout the week. After the jump, check out trailers for a dozen potential highlights from the festival.

    I am excited to check out some of these. I saw American
    The Bill Hicks Story at SXSW. I will be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

    Looking forward to the Bill Hicks. It may be the only documentary i am looking forward too.

    But what bothers me sometimes is how everyone loves Bill Hicks for his views, but they are still themselves too lazy to actually conduct what he tells them about. Everyone agrees on him on his viws, but as soon as they have stopped watching him, they are reduced to apathy and won’t care what he says about commercials, goverment putting fear into our minds to go to war and so on anymore.
