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!
