Here’s your ticket to a full, satisfying meal of this year’s Oscar® nominated short films in both the animated and live-action categories – as well as your chance to predict the winners before the Oscars are handed out on February 22nd! The short-film nominees are traditionally among the year’s most creative and surprising films of any kind, yet they’re also the most difficult to find. This program will present them in one eye-popping program, with a brief intermission between the animated and live-action categories.

Note: The first portion of the program will consist of the five nominees in the animation category, plus a few surprise bonus films. The animation program will run 95 minutes and is suitable for persons under 18. The live action shorts – the final half of the program – are recommended for adult audiences only.
