15 Documentary Feature Films Advance in 2014 Oscar Race

The Oscar race for Documentary Feature Films has been narrowed down to 15 films.

I've had the great opportunity of seeing a handful of the documentary's during the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This is an incredibly tough race for the Oscar Nomination. Here is your list of the 15 films still in consideration in the category of Documentary Feature Film. 

"Art and Craft," Purple Parrot Films
"The Case against 8," Day in Court
"Citizen Koch," Elsewhere Films
"CitizenFour," Praxis Films
"Finding Vivian Maier," Ravine Pictures
"The Internet’s Own Boy," Luminant Media
"Jodorowsky’s Dune," City Film
"Keep On Keepin’ On," Absolute Clay Productions
"The Kill Team," f/8 filmworks
"Last Days in Vietnam," Moxie Firecracker Films
"Life Itself," Kartemquin Films and Film Rites
"The Overnighters," Mile End Films West
"The Salt of the Earth," Decia Films
"Tales of the Grim Sleeper," Lafayette Film
"Virunga," Grain Media

The Academy's Documentary Branch will now compile a shortlist in a preliminary round of voting. Branch members will narrow the list of 15 down to 5 nominees that will be announced January 15th. 

Best of luck to all of the filmmakers still in consideration.
