For the 15th consecutive year, Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures present the Oscar-Nominated Short Films, opening on Jan. 31st. With all three categories offered – Animated, Live Action and Documentary – this is your annual chance to predict the winners (and have the edge in your Oscar pool)! A perennial hit with audiences around the country and the world, don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, Feb. 9th.
The Oscar-nominated shorts programs are not rated, but parents could consider the 2020 animated shorts program to be roughly a PG-13. The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are quite heavy – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. The program overall is rather melancholy, and while there’s nothing especially objectionable within, most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. The films are all very good, but adult audiences will appreciate them much more than kids.
This year's program will include:
Dcera (Daughter) – Daria Kashcheeva, Czech Republic, 15 min.
Hair Love – Matthew A. Cherry, USA, 7 min.
Kitbull – Rosana Sullivan, USA, 9 min.
Memorable – Bruno Collet, France, 12 min.
Sister – Siqi Song, China/USA, 8 min.
PLUS A SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL ANIMATED SHORTS
Fri January 31 & Sat February 1, 7:30 PM; Sun February 2, 2:00 & 4:00 PM & 7:30 PM, Muenzinger Auditorium
