Canadas rich documentary filmmaking heritage

The Hot Docs Doc Library celebrates Canadas rich documentary filmmaking heritage
and is supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage. It provides free access to a large growing collection of documentary films from Canadian film makers. These include materials from the National Film Board of Canada.

Materials can be searched or browsed by topic. There are also playlists for films by young film makers and a section designed for school and college use. A wide range of topics relating to social, political, economic and world events are covered. They include an emphasis on the history, culture and society of Canada, the anthropology of Canadian ethnic groups and Canadian perspectives on world events. Information on copyright and technical requirements is given on the website.
