A new edition of the HotDocs Film Festival is upon us. This year's affair includes 230 features from 58 countries, among them, films by Joe Berlinger, Alex Gibney and Nick Broomfield.
Ahead of the event, The Canadian Crew had the opportunity to talk with the festival’s Canadian programmer, Aisha Jamal. We discussed selection criteria, common mistakes and how to capture a programmer’s attention.
