 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 24th! 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. The animated portion of this year's program (shown first) is relatively family-friendly, though the live-action shorts are recommended for ages 17 and up. This year's total running time is approximately three hours and ten minutes, including one intermission. Since this is always the DFT’s most popular annual program, advance tickets are recommended! The nominated films include
