'Bowling for Columbine' Named Top Documentary of All Time
Top Documentary of All Time
The International Documentary Association, or IDA, was formed in 1982 to serve as a forum for documentary filmmakers, and has since grown into a respected organization for nonfiction films with some 2,700 members in 50 countries.
For the most part, documentaries are relegated to film festivals and cable television channels because the material is generally considered too cerebral for mainstream moviegoers.
But "Columbine" has been an exception, and it is considered a front-runner for this year best documentary Oscar, which is Hollywood's top film honor handed out each year in March.
"Columbine" has already scored well with audiences, tallying $12.9 million at domestic box offices, which for a documentary is a big sum
