Senna is up for two London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, while Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Project Nim are among the nominees for the documentary of the year.

Up for documentary of the year are Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Carol Morley’s Dreams of a Life, Wim Wenders’ Pina, James Marsh’s Project Nim and Asif Kapadia’s Senna.

Meanwhile, the editing team of Chris King and Gregers Sall are recognized for their work on Senna with a nomination in the Sky 3D Award for technical achievement category.

Jason Solomons, chairman of the London Critics’ Circle, said it was “gratifying that our new categories of documentary and technical awards have been able to increase our critical appreciation for the outstanding work we’ve witnessed in this vintage year for quality cinema.”

The London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, in partnership with Virgin Atlantic, are voted upon by more than 120 UK film critics, broadcasters and writers. The 32nd annual awards ceremony will take place on January 19 at BFI Southbank.
