- Part performative theater, part practical one-stop shop to connect with the primary decision-makers of the non-fiction landscape, the Hot Docs Forum in Toronto serves an important function for both sides of the pitching table, as well as the hundreds of observers in attendance both days.

- 'Hobo With a Shotgun,' the splatterfest grindhouse homage with a title that keeps on giving, took a strange route to make it to movie theaters. indieWIRE caught up with the film's Canadian director, Jason Eisener, to get all the dirty details.
- 'The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye' director Marie Losier is this week's FUTURES pick. Her documentary, which debuted at Berlinale earlier this year (where it won a Teddy Award), is currently making a stop at Hot Docs in Toronto.
- 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment announced the launch of Fox World Cinema, a new label for worldwide films, available on DVD, VOD and Digital Download later this year in the U.S.
