"Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders,” Continues in 2009 Oscar® Race

Posted by VISTA Staffing on Jan 4, 2010 11:19:00 AM

On November 18, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that “Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders,” is one of 15 films in the documentary feature category that will advance in the voting process for the 82nd Academy Awards®! Eighty-nine pictures had originally qualified in the category.

Five finalist nominations will be announced on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater, and the Academy Awards will be presented on Sunday, March 7, 2010.

VISTA has supported this film through the many years of its development. We believe it resonates with physicians, particularly those who thrive on the adventure of  locum tenens.

And don’t forget the nationwide satellite screening on Dec. 14th!

Monday, December 14, 2009

Time: 7:30 p.m. Eastern / 6:30 p.m. Central / 5:30 p.m. Mountain 8:00 p.m. Pacific (Tape Delayed) Elizabeth Vargas, anchor of ABC News 20/20, will host the event, which will also include a LIVE panel discussion with frontline Doctors Without Borders personnel and award-winning journalists.
