Edith+Eddie directed, produced and edited by Laura Checkoway received a nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Short Filmmaking alongside five other of the year's best short films.

This year’s winners will be announced at the 2018 Honors Awards Ceremony on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. The ceremony will be hosted, for the third consecutive year, by longtime Kartemquin filmmaker Steve James (The Interrupters, Life Itself, Hoop Dreams), who is a Cinema Eye nominee this year for his latest film, Abacus: Small Enough to Jail.

The nomination comes shortly after Edith+Eddie's nomination for the International Documentary Association's Best Short Award.
