Join us as we present this year’s selection of the Oscar-Nominated Short Films.

For the 15th consecutive year, Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures present the Oscar-Nominated Short Films.  This is your chance to see the Animated Shorts on the big screen before the Academy Awards.  Here are the nominees:

DCERA (DAUGHTER) – Directed by Daria Kashcheeva. Czech Republic/15mins/2019 – In a hospital room, the daughter recalls a childhood moment when as a little girl she tried to share her experience with an injured bird with her father.  A moment of misunderstanding and a lost embrace has stretched into many years all the way to this hospital room, until the moment when a window pane breaks under the impact of a little bird.

HAIR LOVE – Directed by Matthew A. Cherry, Everett Downing Jr and Bruce W. Smith. USA/7mins/2019 – A heartfelt animated short film that centers around the relationship between an African-American father, his daughter Zuri, and the most daunting task a father could ever come across – doing his daughter’s hair for the first time.

KITBULL – Directed by Rosana Sullivan. USA/9mins/2019 – An unlikely connection sparks between two creatures: a fiercely independent stray kitten and a pit bull. Together, they experience friendship for the first time.

MEMORABLE – Directed by Bruno Collet. France/12mins/2019 – Recently, Louis, a painter, is experiencing strange events.  His world seems to be mutating. Slowly, furniture, objects and people lose their realism. They are destructuring, sometimes disintegrating…

SISTER – Directed by Siqi Song.  China-USA/8mins/2018 – A man thinks back to his childhood memories of growing up with an annoying little sister in China in the 1990s. What would his life have been like if things had gone differently?
