John Sloss of Cinetic, gave a talk that was as informative as it was entertaining, however not very inclusive or inviting towards filmmakers. He disclosed his ongoing project, the curatorial platform part of Filmbuff. He also reminded the audience of Cinetic's largest doc success: Exit through the Gift Shop and declared himself a great doc fan. Next, after the War Room screening, I will be seeing DA Pennebaker in person, she will be giving a talk and receiving a Honorary Lifetime Award. Hot Docs is great in general. The Sun is out but I miss home and look forward to Cannes."
