On February 1, DGA members enjoyed the 2013 edition of the Meet the Nominees: Documentary symposium in the Guild’s Los Angeles Theater complex.
Following an introduction by DGA President Taylor Hackford, clips of each nominated film were shown. Then the 2012 DGA Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary Award nominees Malik Bendjelloul (Searching for Sugar Man), Kirby Dick (The Invisible War), David France (How to Survive a Plague), Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles), and Alison Klayman (Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry) joined DGA Awards Documentary Committee Co-Chairs Freida Mock and James Moll on the stage for a brief discussion about the making of their films.
The symposium was followed by a reception where DGA members and guests could mingle with the nominees.
