2017 Oscar-Nominated Short Films: Animation

For the 12th consecutive year, the Belcourt presents this very popular program. With all three categories offered—Animated, Live Action, 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 now the world), don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sun, Feb 26.


Oscar-Nominated Short Films: Animation:

BLIND VAYSHA
dir. Theodore Ushev, Canada, 8 minutes

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

PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES*
dir. Robert Valley, Canada/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 trouble 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.

Additional Short Films:

THE HEAD VANISHES (9 min.)

ASTERIA (5 min.)

ONCE UPON A LINE (7 min.)
