With his witty and illuminative documentary about the millennium hit song “Who let the Dogs Out”, filmmaker Brent Hodge, a native from Alberta, adds yet another, whole different tone to our Canada focus. He smartly chooses a YouTube video informed mockumentary style in order to explore one of the pressing themes for filmmakers and artists today: What is the role of copyright in our digital era? Hodge employs the intricate story about a Trinidadian chant which turned into a stadium hymn and the copyright labyrinth that followed as entertaining starting point for his insightful documentary about the music industry.

Director's Biography:Brent Hodge (1985) is an award-winning filmmaker and, with his own production company, an equally successful entrepreneur. He is well-known for his quirky documentaries and his taste for comedy, pop culture, and everything bizarre.
