Read from indieWIRE that the following 15 documentaries have been selected for Oscar Short List.

I have seen a ton of good documentaries at this year Calgary International Film Festival and “Jesus Camp” is a compelling film that made the Oscar short nomination list this year. “An Inconvenient Truth” is another good film (I haven’t seen yet) that will probably make the final list.
