"ALL THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS" NOMINATED FOR CINEMA EYE HONORS

Wszystkie nieprzespane noce (All These Sleepless Nights), a film directed by Michał Marczak and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute, has been nominated for the Cinema Eye Honors awards, one of the most coveted prizes in the world of documentary filmmaking.

November 3 marked the announcement of nominations for one of the world’s most prestigious awards for documentary filmmaking: the Cinema Eye Honors. This year’s nominees include Wszystkie nieprzespane noce (All These Sleepless Nights), a film directed by Michał Marczak and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute.

Three Nominations for Wszystkie nieprzespane noce (All These Sleepless Nights)

Wszystkie nieprzespane noce (All These Sleepless Nights), a Polish-British co-production, has been nominated for Best Cinematography (Michał Marczak, Maciej Twardowski), Best Music (Lubomir Grzelak) and in a category known as The Unforgettables, honouring the protagonists of documentary films; the nominee in this category is Michał Huszcza.

This marks the third Cinema Eye Honors nomination for Michał Marczak. In 2012, his documentary Koniec Rosji (At the Edge of Russia) was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in a Debut Feature Film, and in 2014 his documentary Fuck for Forest was nominated for the Spotlight award.

Tenth Edition of the Cinema Eye Honors

Marczak’s latest documentary will compete for the Cinema Eye Honors awards against such acclaimed films as Fuocoammare (directed by Gianfranco Rosi), Cameraperson (directed by Kirsten Johnson), and I Am Not Your Negro (directed by Raoul Peck).

The Cinema Eye Honors awards have been presented annually since 2008. Only films that have screened at the following festivals are eligible to be nominated: Sundance, Berlinale, True/False, SXSW, Full Frame, Tribeca, Hot Docs, Cannes, Silverdocs, the Los Angeles FF, Toronto, Sheffield, and IDFA. Candidates for the Cinema Eye Honors are selected by representatives of the world’s major film festivals, and winners are voted by approximately 200 representatives of the documentary industry invited to vote by Cinema Eye.

In 2013, the Spotlight award went to Argentyńska lekcja (Argentinian Lesson), a documentary by Polish filmmaker Wojciech Staroń.

The 10th Cinema Eye Honors awards ceremony will be held on January 11, 2017 at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City.
