Code of Conduct

Hot Docs is a forum to share stories and perspectives on the people, issues and events that shape our world, and we encourage respectful discussion and debate to foster greater understanding and empathy.

For this important exchange of ideas, the Festival is committed to providing a friendly and safe environment in which all can comfortably participate. We welcome diversity and do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or abusive or threatening behaviour of any kind.

Hot Docs reserves the right to rescind the credentials of those who engage in harassment, discrimination, or abusive or threatening behaviour, and to prohibit access to venues and events, without warning or refund.

If you feel you have been the target of, or have observed, such behaviour, please notify a Hot Docs staff manager at the venue, or contact [email protected].

All violations of the law should be reported to local law enforcement. For emergencies, immediately dial 9-1-1.
