The Ryder Oscar Short Film Festival

February 19, 2017


The Ryder Oscar Short Film Festival
Co-Sponsored by Lotus Education & Arts Foundation
February 19, 2017
Times + Pricing Vary – see below
Tickets at the BCT Box Office

Short films, like short stories, are often overlooked. The best short subjects have all of the power, scope and resonance of a feature-length film. The Ryder, in partnership with Lotus, is screening the best of the best: 3 programs (one devoted to animation, one to live-action and the third to documentaries) featuring all 15 Oscar nominees. This is your chance to see the films before the Awards show. More information here, including links to descriptions of all of the programs and individual films.

On Sunday, Feb 19th, the Live Action and Animation programs will be screened at the Buskirk Chumley Theater. The Animation films will start at 2pm and again at 6:15. The Live-Action films will begin at 3:45. Tickets for the screenings at the BCT on the 19th can be purchased at the BCT box office or online in advance. One program would be $7, a BCT Pass for both would be $10. Tickets at the door would be $8.50 and $12.50 respectively.  Admission is free for children 6 and under.

(Please note: a BCT Pass can be used on campus and at Bear’s Place. So for example, if you buy a pass at the BCT and want to see the Documentary nominees the following weekend at Fine Arts, bring your BCT ticket and admission will be free. Information on other screenings can be found here.)
