In celebration of Canada’s big birthday, Hot Docs has put together a series of documentary shorts by Canadian filmmakers…and guess what? It’s FREE.

~ ~ ~

THE FILMS: Hot Docs will commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation with the commissioning of In the Name of All Canadians, a compilation of six short documentaries inspired by Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. From Indigenous rights to multiculturalism to the controversial ‘notwithstanding clause,’ participating filmmakers have each selected a specific aspect of the Charter to explore, looking at how it resonates in the stories of their fellow Canadians. For more info, check out their website:

Join the HS Doc Club by 6:15pm in the lobby of the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Theatre to pick up your tickets. You can find our group gathered around the HS Doc Club sign. Come by to say ‘hi’ and meet other doc fans. Film begins at 6:30pm.

TICKETS: all you have to do is send an email to and the first 15 members will receive a ticket. IT’S THAT EASY. The event is fully sold out and this is the only place you can get tickets so be sure to act fast!!

POST-FILM SOCIAL: Join us after the film for a post-film social with fellow doc club members to discuss the films. Discussion will be taking place at The Labyrinth Bar – 298 Brunswick Avenue. We have the private room in the basement. This is FREE to attend!

IMPORTANT NOTE FROM US: New to the club or coming alone? Let us know. We’ll make sure someone is there to greet you at the door. All friends are welcome (and encouraged).
