85th Academy Awards: Best Documentary Feature Shortlist Announced

imposterThe Best Documentary Feature Oscar shortlist was announced today. Congratulations to all the filmmakers for making it to this stage! I’m especially happy to see so many alums from Sundance and DOC NYC receive this acknowledgement.
