The 2015 Oscar Best Documentary shortlist has been released, and we take a look at six of the films that we covered on BYOD this year. THE CASE AGAINST 8, CITIZEN KOCH, THE INTERNET’S OWN BOY, KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON, THE OVERNIGHTERS & VIRUNGA are all seen here with their trailers and film clips in addition to interview excerpts from their filmmaker’s appearances on BYOD over the last year. It is a great tribute to the best documentary films that were released and explored this year, on the world’s only all documentary talk show.

FILM AND GUEST INFO:
THE CASE AGAINST 8 is a behind-the-scenes look inside the historic case to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage. Five years in the making, this is the story of how they took the first federal marriage equality lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court.
CITIZEN KOCH filmmakers Carl Deal and Tia Lessin, directors and producers, are Academy Award® nominated filmmakers who also produced and directed TROUBLE THE WATER, winner of the Gotham Independent Film Award, the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize, and the Full Frame Documentary Festival Grand Jury Prize.
THE INTERNET’S OWN BOY by Brian Knappenberger, director of “We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists,” follows internet activist and programming pioneer Aaron Swartz from his teenage emergence on the internet scene and involvement in RSS and Reddit, to his increased interest in political advocacy and the controversial actions he allegedly took in downloading nearly four million academic articles from the online service JSTOR.
In KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON, a 23-year-old, blind piano prodigy, Justin Kauflin, who suffers terrible stage fright, finds his way to jazz legend and teacher Clark Terry, 89. Over the course of filming, Terry begins to lose his sight as an unlikely bond begins to take hold.
When Justin is invited to compete in an elite international competition, Clark’s health takes a turn for the worse.
In THE OVERNIGHTERS,desperate, broken men chase their dreams and run from their demons in the North Dakota oil fields. Local Pastor Jay Reinke opens his church to “overnighters,” men and women who have come to the region seeking employment in the oil fields. As Pastor Reinke fights for these men and women against growing opposition, he is drawn into the whirlpool of their troubled lives.
VIRUNGA is Africa’s oldest national park, a UNESCO world heritage site, and the last natural habitat for the endangered mountain gorilla. None of that will stop the business interests and rebel insurgencies lurking at the park’s doorstep. Orlando von Einsiedel pairs gorgeous natural scenes from Virunga with riveting footage of the Congolese crisis, raising an ardent call for conservation as a vital human enterprise.
