Playing at Hot Docs 2013: Special Presentations

Looking for a way to plan your Hot Docs viewing? We're breaking down some of the festival's 11 film programmes for you, one by one.

Of Hot Docs 2013′s 11 individual programmes, Special Presentations is the heavy hitter. These films are the headliners, and among them are many world and international premieres. Of course, that doesn’t mean they’ll all be great, but if you’re looking for docs that will surely get talked about, this is a good place to start.
