SPC also haa "The Gatekeepers" (from Israel) which had a one-week qualifying run in outer suburban Los Angeles County to qualify late last year, opening officially on February 1 in New York and Los Angeles, with at least San Francisco, Washington and Chicago on February 22.
Kino Lorber released the second Israeli co-produced film in this category, "Five Broken Cameras," to limited theatrical play last spring. It comes out on DVD next week as well as Netflix streaming while continuing on Hulu Plus. IFC's "How to Survive a Plague" has had both a theatrical and VOD run and is now streaming on Netflix. "Invisible War" from Cinedigm post-theatrical is out on DVD and also streaming at Netflix.
The end result is that most people with some effort can see some of the nominees (and perhaps both winners) in these two categories before February 24, only Academy members and those with press or festival connections will have had a real chance to see every feature film nominated by then.
