Experience this year’s Academy Award® nominated documentary shorts on our big screen.

TRAFFIC STOP | D: Kate Davis, David Heilbroner | USA | 2017 | 30 min
In 2015, a 26-year-old African-American elementary school teacher named Breaion King was pulled over by a white police officer for a routine traffic stop, escalating into a dramatic arrest.

Love, Cecil

A multi-talented Academy Award-winning artist, Cecil Beaton is responsible for some of Hollywood’s most memorable set and costume design (My Fair Lady, Gigi) and had a significant career as a gifted photographer with The British Royal Family among his clients. In part because of his different focuses, Beaton was never as highly-regarded in any one field as he deserved. Love, Cecil explores the life and work of an eccentric Renaissance man whose irreverence, wit and vision made him a controversial and memorable figure.

Member Screening: A Murder in Mansfield

Acclaimed filmmaker Barbara Kopple (Harlan County USA, Shut up and Sing) is being recognized with an Outstanding Achievement Award as part of the 25th anniversary of the Hot Docs Festival next month. We’re proud to start the celebration early with the Canadian premiere of her latest film, Murder at Mansfield, for this special member screening. Collier Landry returns to his hometown 26 years after testifying against his father as young boy in the 1989 murder of his mother Noreen Boyle.
