Oscar Nominated Shorts now showing at Camera 3
On February 24, millions will sit down in front of their televisions to watch the 85th Academy Awards. Many viewers will have seen Life of Pi, Lincoln, and Silver Linings Playbook, and they have their opinions for which should win. But every year there are a couple categories that most people have had no chance to view: the Shorts. And how can you enjoy a win or gnash your teeth at a loss, if you’ve never seen the films?
Short films are not silly ventures made by filmmakers with no ambition. Most of them pack a punch equal to Les Misérables + Django Unchained x (Director Noms – Affleck). All the talent, drama and emotion that you see in a full length film can be stuffed into 15 minutes that leave you drained from laughter, sadness, or the wonder of what you just learned about the world or humanity. And yet the majority of filmgoers never get the opportunity to see the best of the best.
Enter Camera 3, where every year they show the complete collections of the Oscar Nominated short films. There are three different groupings: the Live Action Shorts, the Animated Shorts and the Documentary Shorts. For only ten dollars you can see the entire category of films.
You can’t call yourself a film lover or an Academy Award junkie if you haven’t seen the nominated shorts!
