We have festival fever here at POV and we hope it’s contagious! We’re back in swing with a fall/winter issue heading to subscribers in September. Articles are trickling in with several hot docs tapped for the fall festivals appearing in the issue. (Although we can’t say which ones just yet.) This issue features several Canadian filmmakers in conversation about their latest documentaries and the subjects who inspire them. From an Academy Award winning icon, to powerful voices in both the arts and human rights, to a double dribble of sports docs, we have lots in store for readers!
