THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
I hope you have been enjoying my year end review this week. Today I am covering short films. This is my first category that isn't necessarily films from 2021.
As part of watching films to prepare for the Oscars each year, I have seen more short films over the last several years than I have in the past. I enjoy them quite a bit because I don't have to devote 2-3 hours to them and oftentimes, the stories are told in such a great way because they have limited time to work with. Every shot, every frame, each character movement has to have a purpose.
Short films are also much more available today than ever before with platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, and even the big streamers like Disney+ and Netflix. I have a variety on this list including animation, live action, and documentaries from 2020 and 2021.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
