FYC 2013: Best Debut Feature
« on: March 18, 2013, 08:18:22 PM »
Please post the debut feature films (▼definition!▼) yr considering (and you would like yr fellow filmspotter to consider) for the 2013 Filmspots here and check this list before nominating. 

Any relevant questions whose answers may benefit everyone will also be added to this post... with said answers, obvi - such as:

Quote
Why is [this film] eligible for Best Debut Feature even though IMDb says it's the director's [nth] film?

The Best Debut Feature category recognizes a director's US theatrical feature debut.  Earlier films that did not receive theatrical distribution in the US do not affect a director's eligibility.

Are shorts allowed?

Yes (except in Best Debut Feature).

Did Girl Walk // All Day get a theatrical release? I thought it was only an internet release.

We're still kinda on the fence about that one I believe.

"The Best Debut Feature category recognizes a director's US theatrical feature debut.  Earlier films that did not receive theatrical distribution in the US do not affect a director's eligibility."

That should be emended to clarify that films like Sita Sings the Blues and Girl Walk are still eligible here. A director can't be nominated twice in this category, though, so a nomination for an early unreleased film (or a film only released overseas) would make the director's true US theatrical debut ineligible.

It's all simpler than I've probably made it sound.
