The Ford Foundation is delighted for the 19 JustFilms-supported documentaries and film projects nominated both for the 35th Annual News and Documentary Emmys and the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys. Cara Mertes, director of JustFilms, captures it best: “The 2014 nominations are a testament to the range and excellence in artistry of film and transmedia content being created currently around important and often overlooked issues and events. JustFilms is honored to have been part of the extended support network for these filmmakers and for the individuals and communities whose stories have been told, both through direct granting as well as through support of organizations that work on behalf of these creative and courageous film and transmedia makers.” 35th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Nominations Brooklyn CastleOutstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story—Long Form Chasing IceOutstanding Nature Programming DetropiaOutstanding Editing: Documentary and Long Form Escape FireOutstanding Science and Technology Programming Gideon’s ArmyOutstanding Informational Programming—Long Form Girl RisingOutstanding Cinematography: Documentary and Long Form Herman’s HouseOutstanding Arts and Culture Programming HollowNew Approaches to News & Documentary Programming: Current News How to Survive a PlagueBest Documentary; Outstanding Editing: Documentary and Long Form Outlawed in PakistanOutstanding Informational Programming—Long Form; Outstanding Research Pussy Riot: A Punk PrayerOutstanding Music and Sound ReporteroOutstanding Informational Programming—Long Form The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.Outstanding Historical Programming—Long Form The Crash ReelOutstanding Informational Programming—Long Form The Invisible WarOutstanding Investigative Journalism—Long Form; Best Documentary The Revolutionary OptimistsOutstanding Business and Economic Reporting—Long Form Valentine RoadOutstanding Coverage a Current News Story—Long Form; Best Documentary 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Nominations The SquareOutstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special Years of Living DangerouslyOutstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series; Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming Congratulations to all the nominees!
