If you go
Hot Docs, a documentary film festival, runs from April 17 to 27 at seven venues in Toronto. Documentaries with good "buzz" sell out early, so it's a good idea to purchase advance tickets. The complete schedule is on the festival Web site, cost $10 Canadian for screenings before 6 p.m., $12 Canadian for screenings after 6 p.m. and $5 Canadian for late screenings (11 p.m.). Various passes are also available. To order, call (416) 637-5150 or go to buy tickets on-site: Tickets can be purchased up to the day before a screening at the festival box office, at Hazelton Lanes mall in Yorkville, 87 Avenue Road (two blocks north of Bloor Street). Day-of tickets go on sale one hour before showtime at the film's venue.Tip: Moviegoers start lining up as much as 60 to 90 minutes before a screening, especially if they need to purchase a ticket. Before you get in a line, be sure to ask the folks ahead of you if you're in the ticket-buyer's line or ticket-holder's line. Hot Docs doesn't oversell seats, but the earlier you get in line, the better your choice of seats.
