The nominations for the Grierson 2012 British Documentary Awards are out and we are pleased to announce we have 3 films listed for Best Cinema Documentary - Dreams of a Life, Bobby Fischer Against the World and Tabloid.
The Grierson Awards commemorate the pioneering Scottish documentary filmmaker John Grierson (1898 – 1972), famous for Drifters and Night Mail and the man widely regarded as the father of the documentary. Established in 1972, the Grierson Awards recognise and celebrate documentaries from Britain and abroad that have made a significant contribution to the genre and that demonstrate quality, integrity, creativity, originality and overall excellence. The 2012 winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 6 November.
