For over a decade, ShortsTV has proudly brought the Oscar® Nominated Short Films to audiences across the globe.
This exclusive release features the year’s most spectacular short films and for a limited time is available to watch on the big screen.
Each nominee is released in one of three distinct feature-length compilations according to their category of nomination: Live Action, Animation or Documentary.
Hair Love – Matthew A. Cherry, USA, 7 min.
Dcera (Daughter) – Daria Kashcheeva, Czech Republic, 15 min.
Memorable – Bruno Collet, France, 12 min.
Sister – Siqi Song, China/USA, 8 min.
Kitbull – Rosana Sullivan, USA, 9 min.
PLUS A SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL ANIMATED SHORTS:
Henrietta Bulkowski – USA, 16 min. (featuring the voices of Chris Cooper and Ann Dowd!)
The Bird and the Whale – Ireland, 6 min.
Hors Piste – France, 5 min.
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.
