For the 28th year, the Wichita Public Library will host screenings of Academy Award-nominated animated, live-action and documentary short films. Screenings start Saturday and continue through March 1.
The program is a longtime favorite of Wichita movie fans, and has expanded beyond the libraries to have showings at the Warren and Orpheum theaters. This year, the Derby library will host screenings for the first time. All showings are free.
To qualify as a short subject for Academy Award consideration, films must be less than 40 minutes in duration (including all credits). These films are typically not rated and – be warned – may not be suitable for all audiences.
Here are the nominees:
Animated short film
Live action short film
Documentary short film
