John Scott's Documentary Selected for Hot Docs Festival


Contributed by Melissa Gattine

John Scott, assistant professor in the television-radio department, had his documentary, Scouts are Cancelled, selected for the the Hot Docs Documentary Film Festival in Toronto. The film is a surprising and cinematic story of an underdog character who finds his "voice" as a telemarketer.

Hot Docs is North America's largest and one of the world's premiere documentary film festivals. Scouts will premiere at the festival on Wednesday, April 25, and will screen again on Saturday, April 28.
