Documentary lovers unite! (Or do they…?)

I am a big fan of documentaries, and of Toronto’s annual Hot Docs festival. I basically have a standing birthday gift request for a pass, and I’m currently in the full throes of the fest – I’ve seen four documentaries in the last five days (and at least a couple more to go).

Standing in line at the Lightbox theatre this weekend, it struck me that it should probably be a good occasion for Missed Connections, or hopefully for actual connections. After all, you’ve got time to chat, as well built-in conversation fodder – “why’d you choose this film? what else have you seen?” – and so forth. Given the impressive range of films, attending the same documentary means you’re quite likely to have something in common with another festival goer.

So, sure enough, I checked Missed Connections, and there have been a few so far, including one at the box office, weeks in advance.
