What was the best documentary of 2011? The staff at POV (PBS.org) decided to try and figure that out. So they went to the top documentary festivals, critics' circles, vote aggregators and other awards-giving organizations and came up with the 67 top documentaries.
They put together this nifty chart lining up all the documentaries based on the number of wins, nominations and list appearances, with the better known awards and festivals getting more weight.

I just wanted to say that I think your website is amazing. I am a beginner with an idea, and the info and articles on your website are easy to understand and answer many questions I have. I can't wait to start filming!
