Hot Docs to simulcast Canadian premieres
TORONTO - Films about video game designers and Chinese boxers will be beamed across Canada as part of a new partnership between the Hot Docs film festival and Cineplex Entertainment.
Organizers at the Toronto-based documentary festival say its Hot Docs Live! program will simulcast the Canadian premieres of "Indie Game: The Movie" and "China Heavyweight" to 35 theatres.
"China Heavyweight," about a boxing coach who recruits poor rural teens in China, will screen May 2.
"Indie Game: The Movie," about independent game developers, will beam May 3.
Organizers say the simulcasts allow viewers in other cities to also catch presentations from filmmakers who attend the Toronto screenings.
Hot Docs, formally known as the Canadian International Documentary Festival, runs April 26 to May 6.
