A perennial favorite, the shorts program includes the five nominees in the categories of Animated, Live Action and Documentary Shorts. Winners in each category will be announced at the Academy Awards on March 2nd, and attendees enjoy the chance to improve their home ballot scores by seeing these films in advance of the telecast.
"We find that attendees enjoy watching the Oscar telecast with added excitement," adds Cinema Falls founder, Julie Anderson Friesen. "Viewing the Oscar Nominated Shorts adds an element of the unexpected and for some provides a critical edge in filling out their home ballot."
As of today, nearly 75% of tickets for the popular Animated and Live Action Shorts event are already sold. These films are unrated.
