 Detroit Film Theatre

Here’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 26th! 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 this is traditionally the DFT’s most popular annual program, advance tickets are highly recommended! Call the DIA box office at 313-833-4005 or order online: PURCHASE TICKETS
