The Oscar Short Film Festival
at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater features the ten Oscar Nominated Short Films in the categories of Best Animation and Best Live-Action. This year’s assortment of short Oscar contenders is a celebration of intimate, personal storytelling -- a rich collection of stories, all of which have something profound to say, whether big and bold or small and modest. This is your chance to see the films before the Academy Awards ceremony.
