Hot Docs Ignite: Making Local Stories Global

Monday, January 6, 2020 from 11:01am

Hot Docs Ignite: Making Local Stories Global

In this free public workshop, Hot Docs instructs filmmakers how to make local stories for international audiences. The Yukon is a unique backdrop for both documentary and narrative films. How do we leverage the distinct people and landscapes that make up our territory to create a story that appeals universally around the world? Using a step-by-step approach with plenty of real-world examples, this workshop will guide filmmakers in how to best shape a local story for broad appeal.


Doc Ignite offers direct market intelligence and skills training to Canadian filmmakers. Doc Ignite is generously supported by Netflix.
