Wait. WHAT? Hot Docs has already announced its prize winners for this year’s fest. With two days of screenings left! Again, I ask, how can the audience award be decided already when there are still dozens of audiences left who haven’t voted?!
And I’m just as surprised at some of the winners. Dragon Girls was the best international documentary??? REALLY? And 12 O’Clock Boys winning anything is unexpected, to say the least.
Anyway, you can read the full list of winners here.
I think all the films have already been screened more than once by day 5 and the last weekend is just for encores isn’t it?
That may be true, but it’s still unclear how the voting/tabulation works.
