I completely forgot about Grizzly Man it would definitely be on my top 10 as I think it's an extraordinarily powerful and fascinating piece of filmmaking. I probably consider it a documentary more than a found footage film which is why it didn't cross my mind when I was compiling my list.

Top 10 Found Footage Films:

The Blair Witch Project
Diary of the Dead
Cannibal Holocaust
Cloverfield
Troll Hunter
[REC]
[REC]2
My Little Eye
Man Bites Dog
Grizzly Man

That's in no particular order I could probably do slightly different list on a different day, but that's what I have at the moment, with Grizzly Man replacing The Bay.

I'm not a fan of found footage films.

That wouldn't be difficult though.

Given the whole film is structured around the last footage found of Timothy treadwell (including audio footage of his death) I would argue that Grizzly man fits the notion of found footage. Herzog was genuinely fascinated by the footage that treadwell managed to capture.

I quite agree. It's also (almost) unique in that the events depicted in the film are not fictional. I can't think of any other found footage films which are also documentaries.
