The best short films have all of the breadth, scope and resonance of feature length films. On Sunday, Feb 19th, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, we’ll be showing the best of the best — the 10 Academy Award nomines for Best Short Film. Five of the films are animated and five feature live actors. The Animation films will start at 2pm and again at 6:15. The Live Action films will begin at 3:45. Tickets can be purchased at the BCT box office or online in advance. One program would be $7, a BCT Pass for both would be $10. Tickets at the door would be $8.50 and $12.50 respectively. 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.
ANIMATION SHORTS 2pm and 6:15 (Running Time: 86 minutes) the animation program features eight films: the 5 nominees as well as 3 “bonus” animation films that were short-listed for a nomination. The first seven of these are appropriate for children of all ages – the eighth may not be. Click here for descriptions of the five nominees.
