Brett Morgen’s David Bowie doc Moonage Daydream and Sara Dosa’s Fire of Love are among the five documentaries in the running at this year’s Bafta Film Awards.
Meanwhile, Kim Hopkins’ longlisted British title A Bunch of Amateurs missed the final five in the best documentary shortlist, which was announced today.
Maia Kennedy, director of Extinction Rebellion documentary feature Rebellion, which was backed by the Doc Society Climate Story Fund, has scored a nomination for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer – the sole unscripted title in the category.
Aftersun, Charlotte Wells’ hugely acclaimed debut feature as writer and director, is in the running for both categories, as is Sophie Hydes’ Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, which is the debut film screenplay from writer and actor Katy Brand.
