Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 25th at 1:45pm for 2018 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Brian F. wearing a blue & white checked long-sleeve shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Last week we did the live-action 2018 Oscar Nominated Shorts; this week we tackle the animated ones. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Animated Short…and more! Program includes: Dear Basketball (USA), in which narrator Kobe Bryant explores what it means to achieve your dream and then leave it behind; Garden Party (France), in which a couple of amphibians in a deserted house explore their surroundings and follow their primal instincts; Lou (USA), the story of a toy-stealing bully who ruins recess for a playground full of kids, but one thing stands in his way: the “Lost and Found” box; Negative Space (France), about a boy whose dad taught him how to pack; and Revolting Rhymes (UK), which interweaves Roald Dahl’s retellings of classic fairy tales with playful twists and surprising endings. Bonus animated shorts include Weeds, Lost Property Office and Achoo!
