MUFFTix: Netizens at Hot Docs 2018
If you're a woman existing on the internet, likely you've experienced some sort of online harassment. It's even got it's own tagline: tweeting while female. So when we were given the opportunity to give away some tickets to a screening of Cynthia Lowen's NETIZENS at Hot Docs, we jumped at the chance. This is a documentary that not only our community will want to see but that people should see. Period.
The internet today is a battleground.
NETIZENS exposes the proliferation of cyber harassment faced by women, spreading from the web to the most intimate corners of their lives. As the internet becomes the next frontier of civil rights, this feature documentary follows three women who are targets of harassment, along with advocates, legal experts and others, as they confront digital abuse and strive for equality and justice online.
Overall we're super excited about this year's Hot Docs. The festival is consistently one of our faves but this year they reached gender parity in their programming which makes us love them even more. (And also made it even harder to plan our schedules as there are not enough hours in the day for all the films we want to see!) We hope you're filling your wish lists with all (or at least half) women directed documentaries. Don't forget to add this one to your list.
Watch the trailer for NETIZENS and scroll down for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Monday April 30 at 10AM screening. We'll be drawing 3 winners on Friday April 27!
