WMM is extremely fortunate to be joined by Tom Oyer, Awards Manager at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who will provide a detailed explanation of the qualifying requirements for Oscar consideration for the Documentary Feature and Short Subject categories. Tom is an expert on all aspects of the documentary and short film categories, including rules, submissions, voting and member engagement and outreach.
