Cinema Eye Honors 2010

Just a quick pointer to the list of this year’s winners at the Cinema Eye Honors documentary awards.  Although the winter often seems to be overloaded with excessive award ceremonies, the Cinema Eye Honors help call attention to the often unrecognized genre of documentary filmmaking and, more crucially, remind us that documentary, like fiction filmmaking is a craft.

This year’s winner, The Cove, a film that explores the often inhumane practices of dolphin hunting, took top honors, winning for best feature, production, and cinematography, and a quick glance at the trailer makes me really wish I’d seen the film when it played at Full Frame.  One of my personal favorites, Agnes Varda’s Beaches of Agnes (trailer), won a well-deserved award for outstanding direction, and Burma VJ also won multiple awards.  Congrats to all of the winners.
