The Unforgettables

The Influentials

Cinema Eye, the organization that celebrates artistry and craft in nonfiction filmmaking, have announced their annual list of “The Unforgettables” – this year’s most notable and significant nonfiction film subjects.

“Filmmakers know that their relationships with their subjects are often the most important element of in the success of their films,” Cinema Eye Founding Director AJ Schnack said. “Many of the greatest documentaries ever made – from Grey Gardens to Crumb to American Movie – were built on compelling individuals who allowed a filmmaker to capture and observe their lives. With the Unforgettables we celebrate this relationship.”
