Oscar Rules Debate Heats Up on NPR

Academy Governor Michael Moore and the Academy's new rules for docs were challenged by Nina Seavey, Director of the Documentary Center at George Washington University, on NPR's Talk of the Nation program today. Seavey, also a documentary filmmaker and founding director of Silverdocs, questioned the inclusivity of the new rules and their impact on IDA's Oscar-qualifying program DocuWeeks, which has qualified over 186 films in the documentary short and feature categories.

The conversation continues at IDA's Doc U this Monday at the Cinefamily in Los Angeles.
