Continuing an annual tradition, the arrival of the 96th Academy Awards, better known as “The Oscars,” on Sunday, March 10 brings with it peak Hollywood glitz and glamour celebrating the best films of the previous year. While blockbuster and indie darlings may get the spotlight, additional categories fly under the radar – specifically short films.
Designated as 40-minutes in length or less, short films often go unseen by the movie-going public, unless they are acquired by streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. Yet short films are just as extraordinary in their compelling storytelling and film structure as the feature-length movies drawing global audiences. There are three Academy Awards short film categories: animation, live-action, and documentary.
This Saturday, March 9 Klamath Film will once again present a showcase of the animated and live-action films nominated for the Academy Awards this year – 13 films in all – starting at 6 p.m. Admission is just $10, or $5 with an active Klamath Film membership (if you don’t remember your membership discount code let us know and we will be happy to provide it).
Films nominated this year are truly a global affair encompassing film crews in Iran, France, Israel, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Canada, and the United States. Films run the gamut of emotions, with the film package considered a R rating equivalent containing adult themes, violence, sexual content, murder, suicide, child abuse, abortion and coarse language. The program is not considered suitable for children under 17.
Nominated Live-Action films include
