OSCAR nom for MY OCTOPUS TEACHER. Listen to executive producer Ellen Windemuth in our “Selling Octopus to Netflix” podcast

Congrats to MY OCTOPUS TEACHER‘s extended family for their nomination in the Best Documentary Feature category by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).

I write “family” because it took a deeply committed and close-knit group of friends and colleagues to bring Craig Foster‘s unexpected subject from chilly False Bay to Hollywood’s #1 shortlist.

How It Happened!
