The Unforgettables

The Unforgettables

Starting a new tradition, Cinema Eye has announced “The Unforgettables” – a list of this year’s notable and significant nonfiction film subjects. The focus of 15 films, these seventeen people (and one bull orca) were selected by votes from more than 80 of this year’s eligible filmmakers as well as Cinema Eye’s nominations committee. With “The Unforgettables” we acknowledge and honor the heart and soul of documentary films: our subjects.
