Bloor-Yorkville has been a longtime supporter of Hot Docs: North American’s largest documentary film festival. We’re pleased to announce that we are returning as the Community Partner for the 2022 season. Culture is a defining pillar of Bloor-Yorkville (you can explore all of our art galleries here) and we’re proud to support the documentary filmmakers and creative team at Hot Docs.
