An Important Update from Hot Docs

For the past several months, Hot Docs’ Board of Directors has been undergoing a review to best position the organization to thrive in the future as a cultural institution and to continue its leadership role in the Canadian and international documentary community. This process includes an examination of the Board’s composition and structure, a governance review that will clarify and update the rules and regulations by which the Board governs the organization, and a review of the Board skills matrix and recruitment policies.

As part of this process, significant steps were taken at a meeting of the Board on June 18. By consensus of members, it was decided to scale the current board down to a focused working board consisting of Nicholas de Pencier (Mercury Films), Kevin Wong (Nulogy), and Lydia Luckevich (Pemberley Investments Ltd.) to effectively and efficiently navigate the critical financial obstacles facing the organization over the upcoming months.

Longtime co-chairs Robin Mirsky and Lalita Krishna stepped down from their positions but will continue to support the organization in other capacities. Over their tenures as co-chairs, Ms. Mirsky and Ms. Krishna have been incredible champions of Hot Docs and have greatly contributed to its success. We thank them and all outgoing board members for their dedication and invaluable contributions that have made Hot Docs a beacon for documentary cinema around the world.
