The Academy named its Documentary Shorts shortlist today, kick-starting the narrowing-down portion of the movie year. I thought last year’s winner, Saving Face, was one of the most fascinating films of any kind released into theaters. I wish more people saw that film, just as I always hope these short docs could get out to wider audiences in general. With distribution means growing, perhaps that’s a possibility in the near future. For now, we’ll have to wait until five of these films get a short play early next year.
