Doc Film at ATL Film Fest

Most of you probably have noticed a lack of posts this past week. Well, do not fear, it's not a result of laziness. As a matter of fact, Documentary Film Online has been preparing for the Atlanta Film Festival. The events kicked off Thursday night with the world premier of "The People Speak."

We're keeping ourselves busy too with over 20 documentary screenings lined up in the next week (some happen to be world premieres). Now the festival is so chock full of excellent documentaries that we are unable to see them all, but hopefully we'll quickly post as many reviews as humanly possible.

So stay tuned and definitely check out the Atlanta Film Festival website. Even if you can't fly all the way to the hub of the Southeastern United States, it's still worth investigating so you can see which documentaries you need to keep an eye on.

Hulu Finds Superheroes happens to be one of my favorite websites. I mean, how can you not love a site that legally (key word here is legally) provides free streaming movies and TV shows to anyone with an Internet connection. Not one's to rest on their laurels either, the still relatively new site (it's just about a year old) continues to expand its partnerships and database and has now started branching into the realm of (good) documentaries.

On that list of recently added docs is my much loved film Confessions of a Superhero, a story about struggling actors portraying famous icons for the amusement of Hollywood visitors. If you don't know a thing about this documentary, check out the review on our website, then immediately jump over to Hulu and watch it.

If you've already seen Confessions of a Superhero, check out some of the other documentaries they now boast, including Dig!, Super Size Me and Kicking It (the story of players participating in the Homeless World Cup).
