Oscar Nominated Shorts: Animation

Charlie Mackesy and Matthew Freud / Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby / João Gonzalez and Bruno Caetano / Lachlan Pendrag/ Sara Gunnarsdóttir and Pamela Ribonon /

Not Rated / Animated / 1 hour, 37 minutes

For the 18th consecutive year, ShortsTV presents the Oscar-Nominated Short Films, opening on Feb. 17th. 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, March 12th.

Please note: The Animated program features one adult-oriented title (MY YEAR OF DICKS). There will be a title card that will appear just before this film. The card will stay on screen for 30 seconds so that you have time to leave the theater if they choose to. Another animated short, THE FLYING SAILOR, includes some full-frontal nudity of the titular sailor but is otherwise unoffensive (and a really nice film).
