Hot Docs and Global Visions present: Doc Soup
Launched in 2001 in Toronto, Hot Docs’ monthly Doc Soup screenings have become must-attend events for Toronto’s film-loving public.
The Doc Soup series has expanded to Edmonton and is presented by the Global Visions Film Festival and Hot Docs. To ensure the best available selection, Doc Soup films are programmed and announced a month prior to their screenings. Whenever possible, guest directors will be in attendance to introduce their films and to participate in post-screening Q&A sessions. In Edmonton, screenings are at Metro Cinema, once a month until May 2011.
Check the GlobalVisionsFestival.com or DocSoup.ca for more information.
