Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 31 March 2016
If you’re looking for a slightly more informative film-going experience, you’re in luck: Toronto’s favourite documentary film fest, Hot Docs, is back this spring. Hot Docs is North America’s largest documentary festival; over 200 films from Canada and around the world will be shown to Toronto audiences of 200,000.

The 2016 line-up is as diverse as Toronto itself; expect powerful, engaging, and thought-provoking films that explore issues of the past and present. A few of this year’s highlights include League of Exotique Dancers, featuring a brilliant cast of vintage burlesque dancers; Brothers in the Kitchen, a site-specific live documentary filmed inside a fully operational restaurant, which explores the issue of refugees and resettlement through the lives of Tamil men working in Toronto’s restaurants; and Hip-Hop Evolution, in which Canadian rapper Shad travels to the Bronx and Harlem to speak with hip-hop’s originators and biggest stars.

Festival tickets are $17 (regular screening) and $22 (special events). Tickets, packages, and passes are now available for purchase.

📅 April 28th – May 8th, 2016

📍 Various locations across Toronto. Check the film schedule for exact locations.
