Three IFP Alumni Shortlisted for Best Documentary Oscar
In the midst of a reception celebrating the nominees for THE BEST FILM NOT PLAYING AT A THEATER NEAR YOU, our film critic friend Karina Longworth pulled out her iPhone to show us the just-posted list of the 15 documentaries shortlisted for this year's Academy Awards. As usual, the IFP has great representation on the list, with 3 of the films having gone through one of our programs.
They are: Garbage Dreams (Spotlight on Docs 2006, Good Pitch 2009), The Most Dangerous Man in America (Spotlight on Docs 2007), and Under Our Skin (Spotlight on Docs 2007). Congratulations to our alumni; our fingers are crossed.
