A perennial hit with audiences around the country (and now the world), don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, Feb. 26th.

ANIMATED SHORTS (Running Time: 87 minutes) 

Borrowed Time – dirs. Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, USA, 7 minutes
Pearl – dir. Patrick Osborne, USA, 6 minutes
Piper – dir. Alan Barillaro, USA, 6 minutes
Blind Vaysha – dir. Theodore Ushev, Canada, 8 minutes
The Head Vanishes (additional film) – 9 minutes
Asteria (additional film) – 5 minutes
Once Upon a Line (additional film) – 7 minutes
Pear Cider and Cigarettes – dir. Robert Valley, Canada and UK, 35 minutes

Important note: PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. An inventively animated first-person narration about a troubled friendship, there’s violence, language, sex, and drug use in it, and it’s not appropriate for children. We’ll have a warning card come up prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like.
