‘Ilhan’ Plummets as Canadian Titles Go Dark in Hot Docs Race

Transformer


By Pat Mullen

The game keeps changing! After holding the top spot for two days in a row, Time for Ilhan plummeted off the Audience Award chart entirely following its final Hot Docs screening. The lead has now been taken by either Transformer, The Accountant of Auschwitz, or Primas. Transformer held the runner-up spot yesterday with Primas at #5 and Accountant at #6. Transformer completed its run earlier in the week, so it couldn’t have dropped below Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, which has its final screening tomorrow. Both Primas and Accountant had their final screenings yesterday.

The Canadian titles eligible for the Rogers Canadian Audience Award have been masked in an effort to keep the race a surprise. The winner will be revealed tomorrow ahead of a free encore screening.
