Cinema Eye Honors ‘Manda Bala’, ‘Billy the Kid’ and ‘The King of Kong’, Among Others

mandabala.jpgI don’t normally post about awards or festivals, (mainly because I’m never at any of them) but I thought it was worth mentioning that The Cinema Eye awards, brainchild of About a Son director AJ Schnack, celebrated its first year by honouring some great docs. I’m glad to see Billy the Kid and King of Kong mentioned, and I’m extremely excited to see Manda Bala in the near future. Anyone who was left unsatisfied by the Academy Awards approach to honouring non-fiction should be pretty happy with these results. Here’s the list of winners as posted on Schancks blog:
