Shaw Media-Hot Docs Forum Pitch Prize and Cuban Hat Award Announced
At the closing reception of this year’s Hot Docs Forum the Shaw Media-Hot Docs Forum Pitch Prize was awarded to Storyline Entertainment/Maremoto Productions’ SHADOW GIRL, a feature-length story of a filmmaker who is losing her sight. Disbursed from the Shaw Media-Hot Docs Funds, the $40,000 cash prize is awarded to the best Canadian pitch at the Forum as voted on by attending international buyers. Also, the Cuban Hat Award, which offers “real cash, no strings attached” support for powerful and unique projects, was presented to SVALKA: YULA’S JOURNEY (Hanna Polak Films/Goats Hill), pitched by Hanna Polak and Jan Rofekamp.
