Want to spend a day at the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto? We're going....and we'll take you along...

You got it.

We're hiring a bus to take a bunch of Park students to the Hot Docs documentary film festival in Toronto on Saturday, April 28. Free of charge.

TVR Prof John Scott's documentary has been accepted into Hot Docs, and we think at least some of us should be there to cheer wildly for him -- and to spend the day watching some of the best documentary films in the world.

The bus will leave Park about 9 a.m. and arrive in Toronto about 1 p.m. You can watch a whole slate of amazing films, and be on hand to see the Hot Docs screening of John's film, "Scouts are Cancelled," at 7:30 p.m. The bus will have you back on campus by 1 a.m.

Tickets for some of the films are $10; you can get online and decide what you want to see. If you want to be positive you'll get in, you should buy a ticket.

OR you can get free passes for daytime screenings, according to the Hot Docs Web site:


Hot Docs is pleased to offer FREE daytime screenings (before 6 pm) for seniors and students. Tickets for free daytime screenings must be obtained at the screening venue on the day of the screening, subject to availability.

And I'll buy tickets to John's film for everybody who goes. (My pleasure.)

I know, I know, it's a crazy time of year. But what could you possibly do that would cost you less, inspire you more, and make you prouder to be a Parkie?

These opportunities don't come along very often. Plan ahead. And take the time.

Email April at if you want to go....and seats are limited (buses are like that) so do it soon.
