A Very British Gangster not at Hot Docs

A Very British Gangster is one of the documentary films I picked for Hot Docs next month in Toronto. I went down to the festival box office and found out that A Very British Gangster has been cancelled.

There was no mention on the Hot Docs website that the film was cancelled or why it was cancelled. I contacted Dare Films in London to find out why the film won’t be shown in Canada (it was shown at SXSW in Austin last week).

Unfortunately there are some copyright issues that are still being resolved and will prevent Hot Docs from screening it next month. What a drag. A Very British Gangster looks like a great film from investigative journalist Donal MacIntyre. I’ll have to look for it on DVD or hope that the film gets a theatrical release in North America.
