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).

Das merkwürdige Kätzchen  (AKA The Strange Little Cat, Ramon Zürcher)  Germany
Blind  (Eskil Vogt)  Norway
Grzeli nateli dgeebi  (AKA In Bloom, Nana Ekvtimishvili, Simon Groß)  Georgia

Not sure if In Bloom is eligible. It's Nana Ekvtimishvili's first feature film, but the second one for Simon Groß.

Since Fata Morgana received no theatrical US release, they are both eligible - or rather their co-directed film.

I'm new to the Filmspots, so I don't know exactly how everything works... Am I still wrong? (if so, please explain)
