Jane/Finch’s Sistema heading to Hot Docs film festival

A documentary made at Jane and Finch Yorkwoods Public School is making waves.
Here's the quote:
For Bloor West Village filmmaker Michael Mabbott, the greatest feeling doesn’t come from his film appearing at the 2015 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Instead, his gratitude is based on the opportunity this will open up for the stars of his documentary, which he filmed at North York’s Yorkwoods Public School, in the Jane Street and Finch Avenue neighbourhood. “It’s amazing. I feel excited and grateful and so happy,” the father of one said. Mabbott’s 20-minute film Music Lessons will appear at the festival, which runs April 23 to May 3. The film follows the first year of Sistema Toronto’s program at Yorkwoods, where the organization started in 2013. Sistema Toronto provides instructions to children in grades 1 to 8 in the city’s underprivileged neighbourhoods. It also runs a program at Parkdale Public School and is opening two programs in Scarborough next year.
