    More on the Academy rules changes, per Deadline:

    “In a sign that things are getting back to some degree of normalcy, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is returning to pre-pandemic rules of eligibility and no longer will allow its digital Screening Room as a way to qualify. Instead, it said that because theaters have reopened, the six qualifying U.S. metropolitan areas continue to be Los Angeles County, the City of New York, the Bay Area, Chicago, Miami and Atlanta, and rules apply to General Entry categories as well as the Documentary and Short Film categories. Feature films must have a seven-day theatrical run before exhibition in any other medium with specific requirements. Drive-ins remain eligible.

    “The Academy also confirmed that eligibility for the 95th annual Academy Awards officially has returned to the calendar year, thus any feature film must have a qualifying release date between 1/1-12/31/22

    “In Documentary, the two category names have been changed to Documentary Feature Film and Documentary Short Film.

    “In Original Song, no more than 3 from any one film may be submitted.

    “In the Sound category, producers will be required to make their films available for viewing by Sound Branch members, particularly when the release date is after the preliminary voting cycle opens.

    “Any special circumstances requests regarding eligible nominees must be received by the General Entry deadline of November 15, 2022. Additionally, clips for the nominating screening (bake-off) shall not exceed 10 minutes of running time per title.

    Submission deadlines:
    Features (Documentary/International): 10/3
    Shorts (Animated, Documentary, Live Action): 10/14
    Original Score/Song: 11/1
    Animated Feature/General Entry categories: 11/15

    “Campaign regulations, which specify how companies and individuals may market to Academy members’ films and achievements eligible for the 95th Academy Awards, also were updated. Access to the Academy Screening Room will continue to be made available for all eligible releases.

    “Digital links to materials will be permitted under certain circumstances. Film synopses no longer may contain credits, as film companies will now have the option to include credits on the Academy Screening Room prior to Nominations.”

    I actually liked the “Documentary Short Subject” name but oh well, Documentary Short Film is pretty straight forward. It also matches Animated Short Film in its simplicity.
