#HOTDOCS: “THE MANOR” ANNOUNCED AS OPENING NIGHT FILM AT 20TH ANNUAL HOT DOCS FILM FESTIVAL
Between April 25 through May 5, 2013, Toronto will once again host the Hot Docs Film Festival, now in its 20th year. The Festival is an annual staple for our City’s truest Film Lovers. This year’s Opening Night slot goes to The Manor, screening at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema on April 25, 2013. The Documentary follows Filmmaker Shawney Cohen as he returns home to a small town in Ontario, reuniting with his 400-pound Father, 85-pound Mother and assisting his Brother in running their Family Business – a Strip Club adjoining a 32-room Motel. Unconventional.
Also walking-in with a bit of buzz are Alias, a Documentary about Toronto Rappers and Last Woman Standing, which follows World Champion boxers and former Friends, Ariane Fortin and Mary Spencer, as they fight each other for an Olympic Dream.
The Hot Docs Box Office is situated at Hazelton Lanes Shopping Centre, lower level at 87 Avenue Road.
