John Scott's Doc is Hot... at Hot Docs

How's this for great news? (We are still planning to take a free bus to Toronto so you can attend Hot Docs and see John's film.....)

From over a hundred movies The Toronto Star selected SCOUTS ARE CANCELLED as one of its thirteen recommended films for the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto. <>, (Scouts Review Below.)


The Hotdocs Festival Page has listed it as one of its Hot Picks!

There are still some tickets available for anyone who still wants to
go. You can buy them online. Screening dates are Wed. April 25th at
9:30pm and Saturday April 28th at 7:45pm in downtown Toronto.

Geoff Pevere writes:

Watching John Stiles performing his poetry – which largely evokes his
childhood growing up in Nova Scotia's rural Annapolis Valley – is like
watching someone lost in a trance. He squeezes his eyes shut, channels
the voices of his speakers and loudly emits the sounds of growling
dogs, wailing sirens and non-verbal whoops of joy and despair. An
original artist with an unsurprisingly obtuse relationship with the
world, he has become the subject of a film – made by his close friend
John Scott – that is both true to the poet's art and understanding of
the person's idiosyncrasies. (April 25, 9:30 p.m., ROM; April 28, 7:45
p.m., Al Green.)
