2024 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Animation

The 2024 Oscar Nominated Shorts – Animation, Opens Friday, February 16, 2024. Individual trailers can be viewed here.

“All hail the short film, where the tools, canvas, themes and artistry can be no different as for a feature, but the only restriction is time. Short films may be less widely seen than the longer kind, but the three Oscar categories devoted to the form provide a welcome spotlight on what makes them special.” – The Los Angeles Times
