Short films, like short stories, are often overlooked. The best short subjects have all of the power, scope and resonance of a feature-length film. We are screening the best of the best: 3 programs (one devoted to Animation, one to Live-Action and the third to Documentaries) featuring all 15 Oscar nominees. This is your chance to see the films before the Awards show.

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 7 and under. 

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