2018 Cinema Eye Honors Winners

The 11th annual Cinema Eye Honors, recognizing achievements in non-fiction film from 2017, were celebrated at the Museum of the Moving Image at a ceremony last evening. Earlier this week, the organization announced its Legacy Award winner, Leon Gast’s WHEN WE WERE KINGS; as well as THE FLORIDA PROJECT as the winner of the Heterodox Award, which annually goes to a fiction film that incorporates nonfiction strategies; and ICARUS as the winner of the Hell Yeah! Prize, celebrated work that has had a significant, demonstrable real-world impact.

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