The 2020 Academy Award® Nominated Short Films: Animation and Live Action
Since 2007, the DFT’s most popular annual program has provided the pleasure of discovery and astonishment at the ways in which cinema can tell stories with fresh vision and unbridled imagination. As in previous years, the 2020 Oscar® Shorts program will combine all the nominees in the short animation and live-action categories – ten shorts in all – into one spectacular showcase, with an intermission between the two categories.
Make your picks and see the winners announced when the Oscars® are awarded on February 9. If past years are any measure, advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended! And be sure to also catch the Short Documentary nominees, playing as a separate program. (Approximately three-and-a-half hours, with one intermission)

NOTE: This year’s Animated Shorts contain no graphically objectionable content, but the mature themes addressed in many of them make them inappropriate for children under 12.
