INFO
Friday, February 10 2017
7:00PM
 
 

For the 12th consecutive year, Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures present the Oscar-Nominated Short Films, opening on Feb. 10th. 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 now the world), don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, Feb. 26th.

ANIMATED SHORTS (Running Time: 86 minutes)

OSCAR-NOMINATED FILMS:

  • Borrowed Time – dirs. Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, USA, 7 minutes
  • Pearl – dir. Patrick Osborne, USA, 6 minutes
  • Piper – dir. Alan Barillaro, USA, 6 minutes
  • Blind Vaysha – dir. Theodore Ushev, Canada, 8 minutes

———————————

ADDITIONAL “HIGHLY COMMENDED” FIMS

  • The Head Vanishes (additional film) – 9 minutes
  • Asteria (additional film) – 5 minutes
  • Happy End (additional film) – 6 minutes
  • Pear Cider and Cigarettes – dir. Robert Valley, Canada and UK, 35 minutes  Important note: PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. An inventively animated first-person narration about a troubled friendship, there’s violence, language, sex, and drug use in it, and it’s not appropriate for children. We’ll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like. Other than PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, the program is acceptable for kids.

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
