The award for Best Documentary Film honors the best in non-fiction filmmaking.
"Searching for Sugar Man" was the leader of a strong pack of nominees. The documentary focused on the search for Sixto Rodriguez, a failed singer-songwriter from the 1970s who was an unexpected hit in South Africa. Directed Malik Bendjelloul, "Searching for Sugar Man" was an audience award winner at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and won Best Documentary from BAFTA and the Producers Guild of America.
"Searching for Sugar Man" defeated "How to Survive a Plague," "The Invisible War," "5 Broken Cameras" and "The Gatekeepers" to win Best Documentary Feature. More about that category can be found here.
Last year, "Undefeated" won Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars.
