After a rigorous selection process, DOCVILLE nominated ten brand new auteur documentaries that represent what the festival stands for: excellently made documentaries that are not only strong in terms of content, but also have an eye for the visual aspect and therefore deserve a place on the big screen.  The best film will be awarded the Canvas Jury Prize and may start dreaming of an Oscar, because the winner of this competition will be longlisted for the Academy Awards.
