2011 Cinema Eye Nominees Announced

Cinema Eye Honors

While we don’t really cover many awards or industry news items here at The Documentary Blog, I’m always interested in hearing the nominees for the The Cinema Eye Honors. It’s a ceremony that highlights the best work in non-fiction filmmaking, focusing not just on subject matter but on craft as well. Their picks also provide a great starting place for anyone interested in catching up on some of the best documentaries of the year. This year’s ceremony will be held at the Museum of the Moving Image on January 18th, 2011, and will also be broadcast on The Documentary Channel in the US. Definitely great news for this growing festival! The 2011 nominees have recently been announced and I’ve compiled them all below. Have a look:
