February 21, 2016

Sunday, Feb 21st at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater      Animation Films 2:15 and 6pm    Live-Action Films 4pm and 7:45

This is your chance to see the Oscar-nominated short films before the Awards Show. As usual, this year’s assortment of Animation and Live Action and 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.

 

Tickets can be purchased at the BCT box office or online in advance. One program would be $7, an Oscar Pass for both the Animation and Live-Action programs would be $10. Tickets at the door would be $8.50 and $12.50 respectively.
