Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts
Hear ye, hear ye! Oscar season is upon us, and this year’s short doc nominations are worthy of maximum praise. Get an edge on your Oscar pool and come laud the final five contenders in a single viewing on the big screen. These remarkable feats of storytelling span a range of subjects, from the greatest living female basketball player you’ve never heard of (in a doc produced by Shaquille O’Neal), to the coming-of-age of a group of deaf teens venturing into the hearing world, to the experience of homelessness in America. Some say the future of filmmaking is the short; we are strongly inclined to agree.
