About this Playlist

The documentaries in this playlist offer a compelling selection of TVO produced documentaries covering a diverse range of everyday issues. From the politically charged “Bill 160” to the touching “Nursing on the Front Line”, TVO gets behind the issues and explores every angle. You will find insightful filmmaker interviews from “The View From Here”, TVO's multi-Gemini Award-winning premiere Canadian series. Additionally, Hot Docs is delighted to present two finalists from the Allan King Film Festival.
