Alexander Nanau's documentary Collective, about the journalistic investigation that followed the fire at Colectiv club in Bucharest in October 2015, features on former US president Barack Obama's list of favorite films of 2020.

Collective is on the list alongside productions such as George C. Wolfe's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Kantemir Balagov's Beanpole, Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles' Bacurau, Chloé Zhao's Nomadland, and Pixar animation Soul.
