 Detroit Film Theatre

This program’s your ticket to a satisfying banquet of this year’s Oscar® nominated shorts – in both the animated and live-action categories – as well as your opportunity to predict the winners before the Oscars are handed out on February 27th! 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. We’ll present them in one eye-popping program, with a brief intermission between the animated and live-action categories. Since some years tend to be more family-friendly than others, we suggest checking the DFT website for more details as soon as they become available. (As a general rule the program is recommended for ages 17 and up.) Of course we also don’t know the running times yet, but traditionally we can expect approximately three hours of exceptional entertainment.
