To determine award nomination eligibility for Outstanding Producer of Documentary Theatrical Motion Picture, a documentary is eligible for awards consideration if it satisfies one of the exhibition methods stated by the PGA. Starting this year, a theatrically released documentary that was “in competition” can now be nominated if it screened at Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs and South By Southwest. Other exhibition methods include completing a seven day commercial run in a theater located in a PGA sanctioned market or if the documentary premieres on national television.
Full Frame, AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs, and South By Southwest join an impressive festival list which has traditionally included AFI Fest, Berlin International Film Festival, Cannes Festival International Du Film, Los Angeles Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Venice Film Festival.
