Help celebrate Hot Docs' legacy!

Thirty years ago, a vision was born: to source, present and celebrate the best documentaries and the people who make them. 

Many years and thousands of films later, we have built a strong community by bringing outstanding films to passionate audiences, as well as connecting filmmakers with the funding and support they need. But we haven't done it alone.

Hot Docs is built on the love and generosity of our audiences and members like you! Your support provides free tickets for students and seniors, education resources for teachers, and training for emerging Canadian filmmakers. Your donation will help us continue this valuable work.

In celebration of our 30th anniversary, a group of anonymous donors have committed to matching all donations and memberships purchased dollar-by-dollar up to $350,000 until May 31, 2023. Donate today to double your gift!

If you would like to become a monthly donor,  select "recurring monthly donation" below.

Hot Docs is a registered charity (895921880-RR0001) and automatically issues full tax receipts.
