Two filmmakers with ties to the University of Texas have been nominated for awards by the International Documentary Association. Russell O. Bush earned a Best Short nomination for “Vultures of Tibet,” his exploration of death rituals in Tibet, and UT student Elizabeth Chatelain received a David L. Wolper Student Documentary Award nomination for her film “My Sister Sarah,” which takes a look at the effects of meth addiction. The 29th annual IDA Awards will take place on December 6 in Los Angeles.
