‘Citizenfour’ Wins Best Feature Award from International Documentary Association

5 December 2014 10:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Laura PoitrasEdward Snowden documentary “Citizenfour” has won the International Documentary Association’s award for best feature.

Poitras received the award Friday night in ceremonies at the Paramount lot.

“What he did was probably the most extraordinary act I’ve ever seen so we could know more as citizens,” Poitras said in her acceptance.

Poitras met Snowden while working on a documentary about governmental surveillance in the post-9/11 era. She began receiving emails from “citizenfour,” who wrote, “I am a senior government employee in the intelligence community. I hope you understand that contacting you was extremely high-risk.”

Poitras and reporter Glenn Greenwald journeyed to Hong Kong to meet with the person she had been corresponding with, who turned out to be Snowden. Snowden ultimately handed over top-secret documents that revealed covert surveillance programs run by the Nsa.

Citizenfour” won over  “Finding Vivian Maier,” “Point and Shoot,” “The Salt of the Earth »

And that's just, like, my opinion, man. But I get it. We must protect whistleblowers and the spotlight of the Oscars is important for this kind of thing, yada, yada, yada. (Not that there isn't a ton of nuance in this situation to be chewed on no matter what side of the political line you fall on.) But... Anyway, Poitros' film won the International Documentary Association's Best Feature prize Friday night, out of a field of nominees that included the aforementioned "Grim »
