OSCAR NOMINATED SHORTS
More than 25% of the films nominated for Oscars each year are shorts, which are typically the least well-known of the Oscar nominees! No prediction ballot is complete without the shorts, so join us, typically the week before the Oscars in February, to view the nominated shorts in three packages; Live Action, Animated and Documentary.
Want to watch the Academy Awards with CIFF? Join us at our annual fundraiser and Oscars viewing party, A Red Carpet Affair. The 2021 Oscars take place February 27.
