The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2012: Animated

February 27, 2012 @ 8:15 pm - 12:00 am


Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Animated Short and more! Program includes: “Dimanche/Sunday” (Canada), in which every Sunday, it’s the same old routine—the train clatters through the village, Grandma will get a visit, and Dad dreams about his toolbox in church; “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” (USA), a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story, inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz and a love for books; Pixar’s “La Luna” (USA), a timeless coming-of-age fable of a young boy whose Papa and Grandpa take him to work for the very first time, rowing in an old wooden boat far out to sea; “A Morning Stroll” (UK), a whimsical tale in which a New Yorker meets a chicken on his morning walk; and “Wild Life” (Canada), the story of an Englishman who moves to Calgary on the Canadian frontier in 1909, but is singularly unsuited to it.

ShortsHD is once again bringing the wildly popular Oscar nominated short film program (Live Action, Animation, and Documentary) to theaters in the US, Canada, and Europe beginning February 10th.

The theatrical release of the Academy Award nominated short films has met with enthusiastic audiences ever since its launch 6 years ago, giving people around the world an opportunity to see the nominated films prior to the Academy Awards ceremony on February 26th.
