Cinema Eye has released its list of “The Unforgettables,” 2015’s most notable and significant nonfiction film subjects.

Among the recognized figures are Amy Winehouse in “Amy,” the Angulo Brothers in “The Wolfpack,” Iris Apfel in “Iris” and Brenda Myers-Powell in “Dreamcatcher.” The list includes the subjects of 15 films in total. 

“We’re proud to recognize the deeply collaborative nature of documentary filmmaking by celebrating the subjects at the heart of some of the year’s best films,” said Cinema Eye Founding Director AJ Schnack, adding, “It’s especially appropriate to see that our voters have included our friend Albert Maysles and his subject Iris Apfel, since it was Al’s words about the relationship between subjects and filmmakers at Cinema Eye in 2011 that led us to create this distinctive honor.”
