Here Are The 15 Semi-Finalists For The Best Documentary Feature Oscar!


Dune

Earlier today, the Motion Picture Academy announced the 15 semi-finalists for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.  These 15 movies were selected from 134 eligible documentaries.  Next month, of course, 5 final nominees will be selected from the 15 possibilities listed below.

Unfortunately, I have only seen four of the movies listed below: Art and Craft, Finding Vivian Maier, Jodorowsky’s Dune, and Life Itself.  

And they’re all more than worth making the effort to see!
