Stories We Tell, produced by National Film Board of Canada, delved into a long-held family secret in the Polley clan regarding the actress-turned-director's true parentage.
Documentary branch members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will now choose five nominees from the pool of 15.
Oscar nominations will be announced Jan. 16. The 86th Academy Awards ceremony is March 2.
Polley was previously nominated for a best adapted screenplay for the 2006 drama, Away From Her.
