Academy Changes Documentary Rules for 2005

by | January 27, 2005 | Comments

The academy is revamping its rules for documentaries, Variety reports. Prior to the change, documentaries that were broadcast on television within nine months of theatrical release were disqualified; those rules eliminated Michael Moore’s "Fahrenheit 9/11" from consideration. Many documentaries are financed by television, and the new rules reflect those agreements.
