Apply Now: HOT HACKS with Mozilla!

Hot Docs and Mozilla invite documentary makers to submit projects for participation in a two-day documentary workshop to be held Saturday, April 28, and Sunday, April 29, at Mozilla’s downtown Toronto offices.

Modeled after the “hack day” format of the open source community, this event brings documentary storytellers and technologists together for two days to produce an original web documentary. A tonic for the long timelines of traditional documentary production, hack days allow documentarians the chance to get their hands dirty with technology, try out ideas, and have a finished product at the end which they can continue to iterate.

Hot Hacks is part of the Living Docs project, a series of events, projects and code to bring openness and innovation to documentary. Living Docs is a collaboration between Mozilla, ITVS, the Tribeca Film Institute, BAVC and the Center for Social Media at American University.
