Best of Nonfiction Film 2015: Selections from the Cinema Eye Honors

Jan 9 — Jan 12, 2016

The art of nonfiction filmmaking continues to evolve and thrive, with forms, methods, and genres developing in astonishing and unpredictable ways. Since 2011, Museum of the Moving Image has hosted the Cinema Eye Honors, an annual ceremony honoring exemplary craft and innovation in nonfiction film. In anticipation of this year’s festivities on January 13, the Museum has selected seven representative features from among the nominated films, plus a special screening of American Movie, the 2016 winner of the Cinema Eye Honors Legacy Award. Among the selections are the final works by legendary director Albert Maysles, and two films shortlisted for the Academy Award: Cartel Land and The Look of Silence.
