Hot Docs presents Citizen Minutes, a series of short documentaries highlighting ordinary Canadians doing extraordinary things to improve their communities. Meet bold and unlikely changemakers who inspire us to jump in and get involved in civic issues close to our homes and hearts.
Docs For Schools is pleased to present the Citizen Minutes project films to teachers across Canada. At a time when citizen engagement is needed more than ever, through these short docs your students will meet civically minded Canadians making a difference who just might inspire students to engage within their own communities.
While themed around civic engagement, there are many subjects and topics to pull from each film. With a selection of stories as diverse as the communities they represent, there is something for everyone with the Citizen Minutes films, along with an education package for each.
