Academy Award Nominated Documentary Shorts
Academy Award Nominated Documentary Shorts 02/16/17 To 03/04/17
Were delighted to present again this year a program of all of this years Academy Award nominated short documentary films (in addition to the short live-action and animated films, which are playing separately). Feature-length documentaries have for the past several years enjoyed a higher profile than ever among moviegoers, but just as with the live-action and animated short film categories, short documentaries which are generally no less extraordinary than the years celebrated feature-length docs have been far more difficult to find than features, especially in theatres. (Approximately three hours)
