Congratulations to director Dori Berinstein and her wonderful doc on the Broadway 2003-04 season, SHOWBUSINESS: A SEASON TO REMEMBER. The film, an unflinching and intimate look at the creation and launch of four high-profile musicals--Wicked; Avenue Q; Taboo; and Caroline, or Change --had its Southeast Premiere at the 2006 Florida Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature and was strongly considered for a Special Jury Award for Editing as well.
The International Documentary Association just announced its nominees for the 22nd IDA Distinguished Documentary Awards, and SHOWBUSINESS is one of five excellent films nominated in the features category. Winners will be announced at a Benefit Gala at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles on December 8, and we wish Dori the best of luck even as we eagerly await getting a look at her forthcoming THE TOY MOVIE project.
