Part of 2021 Oscar Nominated Short Films.

For the 16th consecutive year, the Belcourt presents the Oscar Nominated Short Films. With all three categories offered — Animated, Live Action and 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 the world, don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts, and catch the ceremony with us online via A Virtual Red Carpet Evening on Sun, Apr 25.

This year’s Documentary program features all five nominated short films in one package. 

Colette Anthony Giacchino and Alice Doyard (France/Germany/USA, 24min)
Resistance took courage in Nazi-occupied France. Seventy-five years later, facing one’s ghosts may take even more.

A Concerto Is a Conversation – Ben Proudfoot and Kris Bowers (USA, 13min)
A virtuoso jazz pianist and film composer tracks his family’s lineage through his 91-year-old grandfather from Jim Crow Florida to the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

A Love Song for Latasha Sophia Nahli Allison and Janice Duncan (USA, 18min)
A dreamlike portrait of a vibrant 15-year-old girl whose shooting death sparks the 1992 L.A. riots.

Do Not Split – Anders Hammer and Charlotte Cook (USA/Norway, 20min)
The story of the 2019 Hong Kong protests, told through a series of demonstrations by local protesters that escalate into conflict when highly armed police appear on the scene.

Hunger Ward – Skye Fitzgerald and Michael Scheuerman (USA, 40min)
Filmed from inside two of the most active therapeutic feeding centers in Yemen, Hunger Ward documents two female health care workers fighting to thwart the spread of starvation against the backdrop of a forgotten war.

Rating Guideline: R. The Hong Kong protests, Black history, the Holocaust. Please note that HUNGER WARD is a very intense look at child hunger in Yemen, and the program is very much not for young audiences.
