As the year draws to a close, realscreen has quizzed figures from across the factual spectrum for their 2014 highlights, lowlights, reflections and future aspirations. Here, Ro*co Films founder Annie Roney (pictured) offers her take.

My favorite documentary film of the past year was:

Particle Fever.

I never thought they’d make a program about:

Particle physics.

The program/series/doc people will still be talking about five years from now is:

Particle Fever.

In 18 months, no one will be talking about:

The 2014 Oscar shortlist.

The most positive development in the non-fiction content industry in 2014 was:

Netflix expanding into the rest of the world.

The most troubling development in the non-fiction content industry in 2014 was:

The idea I wish I thought of from this past year was:

Hiring [Sundance Film Festival programmer] Hussain Currimbhoy.

The idea I’m most glad that I had this year was:

Launching [community screening service] Simple Cinema.

If 2014 taught me one thing, it was:

The buzzword I don’t want to hear in 2015:

“Impact.”

My New Year’s resolution for 2015 is:
