What are your thoughts on this shortlist of documentaries? It is great to see 'The Imposter' and 'Searching For Sugar Man', two of my favourite films of the year, progressing. They have a great shot at being nominated but based on the critical reception I expect 'Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry', 'Chasing Ice', '5 Broken Cameras', 'How To Survive A Plague', 'The Invisible War' and 'This is Not A Film' to also compete for the five slots.
