Finalists were selected by the writers and editors of Filmmaker magazine, which is sponsoring the award, and a jury will choose the winner.

“This year’s Heterodox nominees are a formally audacious bunch as they allow their fictions to be shaped and remixed by historical, economic and technological currents,” said Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker‘s editor-in-chief, in a statement. “From within their cinematic hybrid spaces, these films cast a compelling, critical eye on the changing world around us.”

Past Heterodox Award winners are Matt Porterfield’s Putty Hill (2011), Mike Mills’ Beginners (2012) and Jem Cohen’s Museum Hours (2013).
