You’ve got a great story idea for a documentary, but aren’t sure how to pursue it. Today at Hot Docs in Toronto, Academy-Award nominated documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry, who is at Hot Docs with his latest project “Point and Shoot,” moderated a panel discussion featuring first-time filmmakers with films screening at Hot Docs: Amar Wala (“The Secret Trial 5,”) William Westaway (“Writer With No Hands”) and Clare Young (“From the Bottom of the Lake”).
