Citizen Minutes Bnr Sophia Burke

Citizen Minutes

The eight short documentaries commissioned for the Citizen Minutes initiative will premiere as a special free shorts program at the 2021 Hot Docs Festival.

Presented in partnership with broadcast partner Bell Media, the project aims to inspire interest and engagement in Canadian democracy and public affairs by exploring and celebrating stories of civic participation in communities across the country.

The commissioned films were chosen by an internal Hot Docs selection committee and are produced by Lisa Jackson (producer, Door Number 3 Productions) and Lauren Grant (producer, Clique Pictures). Assisting in the creative process is an external advisory council comprised of community leaders who will act as story advisors during the filmmaking process.
