êmîcêtôcêt: Many Bloodlines / Link to Hot Docs

For the second year in a row, an NSI IndigiDocs film celebrates its world premiere at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.

The festival recently announced their full film lineup featuring a number of works from NSI alumni including êmîcêtôcêt: Many Bloodlines (pictured) made by director Theola Ross and producer Alex Bailey through the NSI IndigiDocs training program.

As you likely already know, due to COVID-19, Hot Docs has been postponed while the fest explores the best way to bring this year’s selected films to its audiences.

In the meantime, the fest announced the film lineup as a way to share their excitement for the chosen films, and honour the vision, hard work, and dedication of the filmmakers. Films from NSI alumni in this prestigious group are:

  • Performing Lives including work by Lisa Jackson (Featuring Aboriginal Stories Program)

If we missed your film, let us know!

On Thursday nights starting April 16 you can watch Hot Docs at Home on CBC, a multiplatform festival-at-home experience providing front-row access to titles from this year’s fest.

A selection of exclusive first-run feature documentaries that would have debuted at the festival will now premiere free on CBC Gem and documentary Channel. CBC will also partner with Hot Docs to expand the at-home audience experience with interactive, live-streamed Q&As with filmmakers and other original digital content at CBC Docs.
