Oscar-nommed shorts hit theaters

Release to make shorts available to public

Compilations of Oscar-nominated live-action and animation shorts will be released as two separate film programs in more than 40 theaters nationwide on Friday.

Release aims to make shorts available to the public before the Oscars and create more public interest in the categories.

“It is a fabulous way to broaden our audience of Oscar-excited moviegoers beyond filmmakers and students,” said Jon Bloom, chair of the Academy’s Short Films and Feature Animation Branch.

Live-action shorts program runs 99 minutes and features Javier Fesser and Luis Manso’s “Binta and the Great Idea,” Borja Cobeaga’s “Eramos Pocos,” Soren Pilmark and Kim Magnusson’s “Helmer & Son,” Peter Templeman and Stuart Parkyn’s “The Saviour” and Ari Sandel’s “West Bank Story.”

Torill Kove’s “The Danish Poet,” Gary Rydstrom’s “Lifted,” Roger Allers and Don Hahn’s “The Little Matchgirl,” Geza M. Toth’s “Maestro” and Chris Renaud and Michael Thurmeier’s “No Time for Nuts” join four non-nominated shorts to fill out the 82-minute animated program.

Magnolia Pictures and Shorts Intl. are releasing.
