Hot Docs Needs Your Support More Than Ever

Like many other cultural institutions across the country, pandemic closures severely disrupted Hot Docs activities and we are still feeling its impact.

Currently, Hot Docs is facing a significant operational deficit that threatens our long-term viability.

While we’re seeing positive signs of recovery as audiences are returning to the cinema, and while we’ve taken steps to reduce our overhead without impacting our core programming, we are quickly losing runway and urgently need support to ensure our future sustainability.

As a registered charity, we rely on your support to continue our mission of supporting filmmakers and bringing them together with audiences to share their remarkable stories.

Your donation helps us produce our Festival, operate our year-round Cinema, engage more than 100,000 students annually through our Docs For Schools program, and directly support filmmakers with production funding and training.

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.
