Hot Docs Co-Presents At Open Roof Festival

After its successful launch last year, Open Roof Festival returns this summer with its outdoor film and music series in downtown Toronto. Hot Docs co-presents the five docs screening in the series, beginning with the Festival's opening screening of EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP on June 16. For more on Open Roof Festival and to purchase tickets, visit www.openrooffestival.com/.

Movies screen in the parking lot of the Amsterdam Brewery (bottom of Bathurst street) and include an hour of a live local band!

Use promo code 2offprebuy to get tickets for $13 rather than $15.


EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
Thursday, June 16 D: Banksy | USA, UK

The story of how an eccentric French shop keeper and amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner. The film contains footage of Banksy, Shephard Fairey, Invader and many of the world's most infamous graffiti artists at work. (Sundance Film Festival)


BEAUTY DAY
D: Jay Cheel | Canada
Thursday, June 30

Before Tom Green, Jackass or YouTube, Cap’n Video (a.k.a. Ralph Zavadil) achieved minor celebrity with his zany cable-access television show. When one gag stands – and falls – above the rest, the world’s attention is drawn to his shocking stunts.


THE NATIONAL PARKS PROJECT
D: Various | Canada
Thursday, July 14

Stunning and inspired, this ambitious omnibus film barely fits the big screen. Fifty-two filmmakers and musicians explore our country’s rugged wilderness, translating the landscape into cinematic form to mark Parks Canada’s centennial.


WASTE LAND
D: Lucy Walker | UK, Brazil
Thursday, July 28

A multiple award winner on the fest circuit and a 2010 Oscar nominee, Lucy Walker's transcendent doc follows artist Vik Muniz and his work with pickers of recyclable materials in Brazil’s Jardim Gramacho, the world's largest landfill site.


CONAN O'BRIEN CAN'T STOP
D: Rodman Flender | USA
Thursday, August 11

Dumped from The Tonight Show and banned from appearing on television, radio or the Internet for six months: what’s a firebrand comic to do? Hit the stand-up road looking for laughs…and revenge. Go, Coco!
