The cinematography awards went to Zak Mulligan for Diane Bell's Obselidia; Kirsten Johnson and Laura Poitras for Poitras' documentary The Oath; Mariano Cohn and Gaston Duprat for their Argentinean drama about warring neighbors, The Man Next Door; and Kate McCullough and Michael Lavelle for Ken Wardrop's Irish documentary His and Hers.

Editing awards went to Penelope Falk for Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's US documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work and Joelle Alexis for Yael Hersonski's German/Israeli documentary A Film Unfinished.
