15 The Audience is Strong and Growing Stronger!
Hot Docs has experienced exponential growth, and in 2012 we welcomed audiences of over 165,000. Pop culture and celebrity docs show audiences a more personal side to their favorite icons in films like You’ve Been Trumped, Being Elmo, Becoming Chaz, and Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop. Environmental issues and their champions become larger than life heroes in films like The Cove, An Inconvenient Truth, Gasland and Supersize Me. Spotlights on different countries offer a chance to visit far off places. In documentaries, we see stories of human rights and redemption, we explore cultures from around the world, and we learn from the extraordinary lives of others. These stories introduce a new reality for the viewer and help us to create a more powerful understanding of the world we live in. Highlights from 2012 Only the Young Tchopolous ... Announcables for 2013
