All three categories are offered – Animation, Live Action, and Documentary. This is your annual chance to see all of these nominees before the Academy Awards on Sunday, February 9 at 8 PM.
ANIMATED SHORTS (Running Time: 83 minutes)
Hair Love –Matthew A. Cherry, USA, 7 min.
Dcera (Daughter) –Daria Kashcheeva, Czech Republic, 15 min.
Memorable –Bruno Collet, France, 12 min.
Sister –Siqi Song, China/USA, 8 min.

PLUS A SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL ANIMATED SHORTS:
Henrietta Bulkowski –USA, 16 min. (featuring the voices of Chris Cooper and Ann Dowd!)
The Bird and the Whale –Ireland, 6 min.
Hors Piste –France, 5 min.
Animated Shorts: PG-13. The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are quite heavy – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one-child policy, and more. The program overall is rather melancholy, and while there’s nothing especially objectionable within, most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. The films are all very good, but adult audiences will appreciate them much more than kids.
