More changes at Hot Docs: Programming manager Karina Rotenstein is leaving at the end of the week after four years in the post.
Rotenstein said in a Tuesday email her last day at the Canadian documentary festival would be October 14, as she is “leaving to pursue other opportunities.”
Her departure follows news that Charlotte Cook, a former BBC Storyville executive and Edinburgh Film Festival programmer, has been hired by Hot Docs to become its new director of programming, replacing Sean Farnel.
Rotenstein leaves a Hot Docs programming team that includes Lynne Fernie, Heather Haynes and Lynne Crocker. The 19th annual Hot Docs festival takes place next year from April 26 to May 6.
