Istituto Luce Cinecittà will coordinate, also this year, the selections for Italian documentaries at Hot Docs - Canadian International Documentary Film Festival (April 29th – May 9th, 2021).
For obvious reasons due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not host a HOT DOCS' delegate in Rome this year, but we will always be in contact with the Programming Team in order to coordinate the submissions of Italian films.
Here are selected selection guidelines:
* Hot Docs features two juried competition programs, Canadian Spectrum and International Spectrum, and several non-competitive programs. Feature-length films in the Spectrum programs are eligible for jury prizes.
* All feature films are eligible for the Audience Award.
* Films must have been completed after January 1, 2020.
* Films must be at minimum Ontario premieres and must not be available online in any form, for any period of time, to Ontario audiences prior to the 2021 Festival (this includes DVDs for purchase or VOD of any length or language).
