'Anvil' among IDA doc nominees

12 November 2009 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

"Anvil! The Story of Anvil," the account of an obscure Canadian heavy metal band, will square off against four more seriously themed documentaries at the 2009 Ida Awards.

The other contenders in the feature category, announced Thursday by the International Documentary Assn., are "Afghan Star," about finalists in an Afghanistan version of "American Idol"; "Diary of a Times Square Thief," about the search for a mysterious diary; "Food, Inc.," which examines the U.S. food industry; and "Mugabe and the White African," the story of a fifth-generation white African farmer.

Eligible films had to be completed, released or broadcast by July 30, so a number of docs, released in the second half of the year such as Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story"  did not qualify for consideration.

The winners will be saluted Dec. 4 at the DGA in Los Angeles at a ceremony hosted by "This American Life's" Ira Glass. »
