Hot Docs Partners & Alumni Films at Sundance

Hot Docs Partners is honoured and delighted to support three incredible films that will premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Hot Docs Partners is a $2.6-million CAD financing initiative that connects committed investors with Canadian and international feature documentary productions seeking financing.

As part of the Hot Docs family, each film has had multiple touchpoints of support with Hot Docs throughout their creation. Our team is proud to have offered critical creative connections, funding grants, investments and a continuum of support to help bring these projects to life. In addition to Hot Docs Partners support:

Softie (D: Sam Soko; Kenya) received a Hot Docs-Blue Ice Group Documentary Fund grant and fellowship, pitched at the 2018 Hot Docs Forum and Deal Maker, and won a first look Pitch Prize at the Forum;

Influence (D: Diana Neille, Richard Poplak; South Africa, Canada) pitched at the 2018 Hot Docs Forum and Deal Maker (as Agents of Influence);

and Once Upon a Time in Venezuela (D: Anabel Rodríguez Ríos; Venezuela, UK, Brazil, Austria) pitched at the 2018 Hot Docs Forum and Deal Maker (as The Last Year of Congo Mirador).
