The 2019 Oscar nominations will be announced on January 23, 2019. But the Academy has already narrowed down its candidates in many categories, one being he Animation Shorts!
If you need a distraction from mainstream films, there are 15 Oscar-nominated movies quietly soliciting your attention, along with that of the academy voters. The short-film nominees are often unsung awards-season highlights, too easily overlooked except for office-pool balloting purposes. This is a shame, since in about three 90 minutes +/1 sessions, you could take a remarkably wide-ranging tour of -world cinema – animated, live action and documentary.
This years Animation titles are:
“Animal Behavior” (Canada, 14 Minutes, 2018)
“BAO” (USA, 8 Minutes, 2018)
“Late Afternoon” (Ireland, 10 Minutes, 2017)
“One Small Step” (USA & China, 8 Minutes, 2018)
“Weekends” (USA, 15 Minutes, 2007)
$10 General Admission; $7 to TFS members and students with valid IDs.
