The Oscars are coming soon. And in York, PA they’re coming even sooner—this Saturday, actually at Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center. Come out and experience a dual Oscar nomination evening event with showings of this year’s Oscar nominated short films.
The Oscar nominated short film event will be broken into two separate ticketed events. The first event, which will take place at 5 p.m., will be this year’s nominated live action short films. This will follow with nominated animated short films at 7 p.m. Each event ticket individually costs $8 a person. However, there is a special offer available for paying $10 to attend both events together.
In the Live Action category, all films shown will total 107 minutes and feature independent and foreign film installments spanning a broad range of interests. The list will include the following live action shorts: Ave Maria (15 minutes, directed by Basil Khalil), Shok (21 minutes, directed by Jamie Donoughue), Everything Will Be OK (30 minutes, directed by Patrick Vollrath), Stutterer (12 minutes, directed by Benjamin Cleary), and Day One (25 minutes, directed by Henry Hughes).
