The First Annual Cinema Eye Awards

The First Annual Cinema Eye Awards

Congratulations to AJ Schnack, Thom Powers and all of the winners and nominees on what seems to have been an exceptional night at the IFC Center. As a Nominating Programmer for the First Annual Cinema Eye Awards shortlist and having voted for the awards, I am proud to have been a small part of what I think was an important process to bring proper recognition to the field of non-fiction filmmaking. I truly hope AJ and Thom will invite me to participate again next year as I was deeply honored to have been included and very much enjoyed being involved. I only wish my obligations in Florida had not kept me from attending the ceremony.

I am going to stay quiet on the winners and losers (except to say that I was very surprised in several categories) because for me, all of the films on the short list were exceptional and deserved to be recognized. I think these awards are a great idea and I can’t wait to see how the process changes and things develop in the coming years. Regardless, this is a very exciting (and seemingly very well executed) first step and again, I couldn’t be more proud and honored to have been involved. Congratulations and I look forward to reading the thoughts and reactions of the film community to the awards in the coming days…
