Hot Docs Boasted New Attendance Record
The Toronto-based festival was a huge success.
The 2010 Hot Docs festival wrapped up with record-breaking attendance. This year’s 11-day event saw approximately 136,000 audience members attend the screenings. In addition to over 170 documentaries from around the world, Hot Docs also hosted three speaker series, a conference and a market for professionals.
“This was by far our most successful Hot Docs to date,” said Hot Docs executive director Chris McDonald in a press release. “Our job is to source the best documentaries in the world, then pack local cinemas with eager film fans. We've accomplished both of these goals again this year, and, in the process, have seen larger audiences and more sold out screenings than ever before.”
Hot Docs collected ballots of ratings after every screening and among the audience favourites were Thunder Soul, Autumn Gold, RUSH: Beyond the Lighted Stage and A Small Act.
