2017 Oscar Shorts poster 11X20 with DOCS

March 2-March 4     Single Tickets $8     Oscar Festival Passes $12     Where Are Films Shown?     Where Can I Park? 

One final weekend to see the  films that critics are raving about and predict the Oscar-winners before the Academy Awards on March 4th. We are showing the 15 Oscar nominees for Best Short Film, showcasing the year’s most anticipated short films across Live Action, Animation, and Documentary categories. Many Hollywood movies are impersonal — they have unimaginable budgets and nothing creative at stake, This year’s assortment of short Oscar contenders is a celebration of intimate, personal storytelling. Each 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.

Meet the nominees! Read short, snappy descriptions of the Animation films, the Live-Action films and the Documentaries

Each individual program is $8 but for $12 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.

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 at one of our fine local restaurants.
