Winners for the second annual Critics' Choice Documentary Awards were announced Thursday by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. Jane took home the evening’s most prestigious award for best documentary.
There also was a tie for best director between Evgeny Afineevsky for Cries From Syria and Frederick Wiseman for Ex Libris: The New York Public Library.
Kedi, a story about wild cats in Istanbul, led the nominations with four going into the night: best documentary, best first documentary, most innovative documentary and best director. The cat-centered film ultimately took home one award: best first documentary. Five other films had three noms: California Typewriter, Chasing Coral, City of Ghosts, Cries From Syria and Dawson City: Frozen Time.
The awards gala, hosted by magician Penn Jillette, took place at BRIC in Brooklyn. Oscar- and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger also was honored at the event with the Critics' Choice Impact Award.
