Meet the Nominees: Documentary

February 3, 2017 69th Annual DGA Awards

On February 3, DGA members enjoyed the 2017 edition of the Meet the Nominees: Documentary event in the Guild’s Los Angeles Theater One. The evening opened with a welcome by DGA National Vice-President Vincent Misiano, followed by introductory remarks from DGA Documentary Awards Committee Co-Chair Penelope Spheeris. Then DGA’s 2016 Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary Award nominees: Otto Bell (The Eagle Huntress), Ezra Edelman (O.J.: Made in America), Josh Kriegman (Weiner) and Roger Ross Williams (Life, Animated) joined DGA Documentary Awards Committee Co-Chair James Moll on the stage to discuss the making of their films, illustrated by clips from each.

The symposium was followed by a reception where the nominees mingled with DGA members and guests. Nominees Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) and Elyse Steinberg (Weiner) were not available to participate.
