2017 Cinema Eye Honors Winners

logoThe 10th anniversary Cinema Eye Honors, recognizing achievements in non-fiction film from 2016, were celebrated at the Museum of the Moving Image at a ceremony last evening. Earlier this week, the organization announced its Legacy Award winner, Rob Epstein’s THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK; as well as Michal Marczak’s hybrid ALL THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS as the winner of the Heterodox Award, which annually goes to a fiction film that incorporates nonfiction strategies.

Below is the full list of winners announced at last night’s ceremony, which was hosted for the second year in a row by acclaimed documentarian and part-time comedian Steve James. I was happy to once again serve on the Nominations Committee. Congratulations to all the winners, nominees, and the Cinema Eye organizers!
