Workshop

DOC Meetup at TIFF

All DOC members are invited to join us for a virtual meetup on Thursday September 16 at 6pm EST! Chat with the DOC community and celebrate our members with films at TIFF. Come show your support to Breakthrough alums Shasha Nakhai and Kenya-Jade Pinto, who are premiering their narrative feature, Scarborough!

Adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by Catherine Hernandez, Scarborough is an unflinching portrait of three low-income families struggling to endure within a system that’s set them up for failure. It shows the love and perseverance communities can foster, lifting up families to overcome the obstacles placed in their way.

Learn more about Scarborough and get tickets here.
