OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE

Oscar hype reaches a fever pitch this month as we close in on the 88th Academy Awards presentation on February 28. Who will be honored for the year’s greatest achievements in filmmaking? If you aren’t up to speed on the most talked-about contenders, or if you’re already Oscar-savvy and want a terrific refresher course before the big day, this is your chance.

Our yearly staples include the Oscar-Nominated Shorts programs, including all nominated documentary, live-action and animated shorts from 2015; 89.3 KPCC’s "FilmWeek" Oscar Preview, recorded in front of a live audience; and panel discussions with the Oscar-Nominated Editors ("Invisible Art, Visible Artists") presented by the American Cinema Editors, and Production Designers and Set Decorators, presented by the Art Directors Guild and the Set Decorators Society of America.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise and Grant Moninger with the assistance of Andrew P. Crane for Oscar Shorts and Margot Gerber for KPCC FilmWeek Oscar Preview show.
