Nominations for the 6th annual Cinema Eye Honors will be announced November 2 at an AFI Fest reception at the Roosevelt Hotel. Honoring nonfiction filmmaking, the Cinema Eye Honors will announce ten feature film nominees as well as Outstanding Short Film. They recognized filmmakers Steve James ("The Interrupters"), Tim Hetherington ("Diary") and Mike Mills ("Beginners"), among others, for their work in 2011.

This is the first time Cinema Eye is partnering with AFI Fest, and also the first time the announcements have been made in Los Angeles.

Cinema Eye is changing the way its nominations are determined. This year, nominees for Best Feature Documentary will be chosen by votes from their Nominations Committee, consisting of 25 top international film festival programmers specializing in docs, as well as from votes by over 60 of this year's eligible filmmakers who were asked to name their favorite doc of the past year.

The shorts were narrowed down to ten by the Cinema Eye short film nominations committee (ten international programmers who specialize in short docs) and then a jury selects the five nominees and one winner.

However, the other nine categories (Direction, Production, Editing, Cinematography, Original Score, Graphic Design & Animation, Audience Choice, Spotlight and Debut) were chosen by the Nominations Committee, per usual.

“We were immediately excited by the idea of engaging our filmmakers, who have spent the past year watching the work of their colleagues, and asking them, ‘which of this year’s films made you excited about what nonfiction can do?’, explains Cinema Eye co-chair and founder AJ Schnack. "We’re thrilled that this year’s nominees for Outstanding Feature will reflect the passions of the larger documentary community.”



The Cinema Eye awards will be presented January 9 at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York.

We interviewed Schnack here.
