Filmmaker AJ Schnack (Kurt Cobain: About a Son) is putting together his list of the top 25 documentary film festivals in the world, with lots of input from other filmmakers and industry representatives. I was very pleased that Toronto took two places in the top ten, with TIFF coming in at #2 and Hot Docs at #6.
As of this writing, he’s only posted the top ten, but I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the list, and (hopefully) getting to attend some of these festivals in the future.
As a side note, I’m heading to #4 (South by Southwest) in just over a week! Maybe I’ll have a chance to talk up Toronto a little bit with AJ and others while I’m there.
