What is Hockey 24?

Hockey 24 is a documentary about community hockey in Canada, all filmed on a single day.

On November 17th, we’re asking Canadians to join our award-winning filmmakers in filming their day in community hockey, both on and off the ice. Once the footage is collected, we’ll use it all create a unique snapshot of life in Canada.

Keep the camera rolling


There are so many experiences that make up community hockey, it takes a nation to show them all. Think about how hockey shapes your day. Got a hockey-mad kid you have to wake up for early-morning practice? Film it. Are you a coach herding your team to a local tournament? Film it. Whether you’re a player, a parent, a friend, a coach, or even the driver of an ice-resurfacing machine, we want to see hockey in your life. What’s your routine? Your traditions? Your place in the hockey community? We want to see it all!

No, we will only be using footage shot on Sunday, November 17th, because seeing our shared experiences with community hockey as they happen simultaneously across the country is what the whole film is about!

After you’ve captured your footage on November 17th, visit this same page to upload your material. You’ll be taken to our submission portal with an easy-to-use upload tool, and some brief form-filling of basic details we’ll need to collect from you.

Use a smartphone. A video camera. A helmet cam. You can even strap a camera to a puck, a stick, or a net — whatever! Just find a way to film as much of your life in hockey on November 17th.

Yes you can. Here are some tips:

1. Film in landscape: If you film with your smartphone, turn it sideways for best results.

2. Get as close as you can: Focus on what you want us to see and try to fill the frame with your subject.

3. Keep the camera running: The more you film, the better the chance you’ll capture something really special.

4. Think about sound: If you’re filming someone speaking, do your best to limit noise in the background.

5. Avoid shaky movements: It can be hard to film free-hand, but do your best to keep a steady hand.

You are welcome to submit footage as short as 10 seconds or as long as 24 hours. As long as the footage is from November 17th between 12:00AM and 11:59PM in your time zone, we want it.

Don’t worry about editing, that’s our job! We want your raw and authentic experience. If you intend to edit something together, include that as well, but keep in mind that we’ll be getting thousands of submissions and will need to do some editing of our own to feature as much as we can from across the country.

Yes, photographs are definitely welcomed. And if you fancy yourself a photographic journalist in the making, feel free to share your images with a write-up to explain the story.

You might not find out until the film is released in the Spring of 2020. However, there is the possibility that we’d need to contact you at some point after your submission, so please ensure contact information provided is up to date and checked regularly.

Please review the contest rules & regulations, which can be found below.
