Banksy film included in Oscar documentary longlist
UK graffiti artist Banksy’s film Exit through the Gift Shop is in the running for next year’s Academy Award for best documentary feature.
It is one of 15 titles that will be whittled down to five in time for the Oscar nominations on 25 January.
The documentary tells of an amateur film-maker who attempts to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the elusive artist turn the camera on him.
Other documentaries that have been longlisted include Inside Job, an analysis of the 2008 global financial crisis narrated by the actor Matt Damon.
