The 2019 Academy Award® Nominated Short Films - animated and live action

The DFT’s most popular annual program provides both the pleasure of discovery and renewed wonder at the ways in which the cinema can explore the world through fresh eyes and unbridled imaginations.

As in previous years, the 2019 Oscar® Shorts program will present all five nominees in both the short animation and live-action short film categories in one spectacular presentation, with an intermission between the two sections. Make your picks and see the winners announced when the Oscars® are awarded on February 24th. 

If past years are any measure, advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended! (Approximately three-and-a-half hours, with one intermission)
