2016 Oscar Short Film Festival

February 4, 2016 - February 21, 2016

Jan 29-Feb 21 Sunday, Feb 21st at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Scroll down for times and  locations

This is your chance to see the 15 Oscar-nominated short films before the Awards Show. As usual, this year’s assortment of Animated, Live Action and Documentary short Oscar contenders is a celebration of intimate, personal storytelling. Every filmmaker leaves his or her fingerprints on the material, making it a rich collection of stories, all of which have something profound to say, whether big and bold or small and modest.

Each individual program is $5 but for $10 you can buy an Oscar Pass admitting you to all three (on different nights, on different weekends). Admission is free for children 6 and under.

On Sunday, Feb 21st, the Live Action and Animation programs will be screened at the Buskirk Chumley Theater but with a different ticketing structure.  Tickets can be purchased at the BCT box office or online in advance. One program would be $7, an Oscar Pass for both would be $10. Tickets at the door would be $8.50 and $12.50 respectively.

PURCHASE TICKETS IN ADVANCE FOR THE BUSKIRK-CHUMLEY THEATER SCREENINGS

At the screenings you can vote for your favorite film (or the film that you think will win the Oscar) – pick the eventual winner and  you will win a complimentary ticket to another Ryder film and be entered into a contest for Dinner for Two.

THE OSCAR SHORT FILM FESTIVAL IS SPONSORED IN PART BY THE LOTUS EDUCATION AND ARTS FOUNDATION
