(Toronto – May 26, 2015) Blue Ice Docs has come aboard as the Canadian distributor for Dense City which is a feature documentary pitched recently at the Hot Docs Forum by filmmakers Michael Bernard, Gavin Froome and Producer Leah Mallen of Twofold Films.

Dense City hits the right notes in terms of top of mind issues and relevant subject matter for our Canadian audiences,” says Robin Smith, Co-owner|CEO of Blue Ice Docs,
“and comes from a team that we know can deliver an accessible, entertaining and well- crafted film.”
