2015 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts
The American Cinematheque presents all of the 2015 Oscar-nominated animated shorts! Distributed by Shorts International and Magnolia Pictures.

The Bigger Picture” (U.K., 8 min. Daisy Jacobs, Christopher Hees) 'You want to put her in a home; you tell her; tell her now!' hisses one brother to the other. But Mother won't go, and their own lives unravel as she clings on. Innovative life-size animated characters tell the stark and darkly humorous tale of caring for an elderly parent.

The Dam Keeper” (U.S., 18 min. Robert Kondo, Dice Tsutsumi) This original animated short film by feature animation artists Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi tells the tale of a young pig encumbered with an important job, and the meeting of a new classmate who changes everything. A first-time collaboration between some of the most talented artists in animation, The Dam Keeper made its world premiere as an official selection at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival and is slated to make its US premiere at The New York International Children's Film Festival this spring.

Feast” (U.S., 6 min. Patrick Osborne, Kristina Reed) This new short, from first-time director Patrick Osborne (Head of Animation, PAPERMAN) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.

Me and My Moulton” (Canada, 14 min. Torill Kove) One summer in mid-’60s Norway, a seven-year-old girl asks her parents if she and her sisters can have a bicycle. The short provides a glimpse of its young protagonist’s thoughts as she struggles with her sense that her family is a little out of sync with what she perceives as “normal”.

A Single Life” (Netherlands, 3 min. Joris Oprins) When playing a mysterious vinyl single, Pia is suddenly able to travel through her life.
