Cinema Eye Announces 2014 'Shorts List'

Nonfiction filmmaking organization Cinema Eye has just unveiled the fifteen finalists for the 2014 Cinema Eye Honor for Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Short Filmmaking. The announcement was made on the first day of the 9th Annual Camden International Film Festival, which marks the fifth year that they have partnered with Cinema Eye to give out this award, which will be presented at the 7th Annual Cinema Eye Honors in New York City this January. 

This year’s finalists include a few filmmakers who are not new to Cinema Eye Honors: Laura Poitras, nominated this year for her NY Times Op-Ed “Death of a Prisoner,” was named Outstanding Feature Director in 2011 for “The Oath,” Yuri Ancanari was on the Shorts list in 2012 for “The Oath,” as was Sergio Oksman in 2011 for “Notes on the Other.” In addition, director Eva Weber has become the first filmmaker ever to have two films named as finalists in the same year.
