With Hot Docs 2013 in high gear after last night's opening we come back today with our biggest assembly of reviews yet. Here for your reading pleasure are a look at 17 more films playing this year at one of the biggest all documentary festivals in the world.

Interview: Amy Finkel

Dork Shelf talks to Amy Finkel, director of the Hot Docs 2013 selection, Furever: a film about the preservation of the memory of dead pets. We talk about the stigma surrounding the grieving process, who stands to profit from it, her personal connection to the material, and why cremation might be the most suspect method of memorializing a pet shown in the film.
