Lotus is pleased to co-host/co-present the Ryder Oscar Short Film Festival again this year at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on February 21.  The screening will include the 2016 nominees for Best Live Action and Best Animation Short Films.

    Live Action 4pm and 7:45
Tickets for the 2/21 event can be purchased at the BCT box office or online in advance (going on sale soon). One program would be $7, an Oscar Pass for both would be $10. Tickets at the door would be $8.50 and $12.50 respectively.

At the screenings you can vote for your favorite film (or the film that you think will win the Oscar) – pick the eventual winner and  you will win a complimentary ticket to another Ryder film and be entered into a contest for Dinner for Two.

ANIMATED SHORTS (Running Time: 91 minutes)  the animation program  features ten films: the 5 nominees as well as 5 other animation films that were short-listed for a nomination.

Sanjay’s Super Team – dir. Sanjay Patel, USA, 7 minutes
World of Tomorrow – dir. Don Hertzfeldt, USA, 17 minutes
Bear Story – dir. Gabriel Osorio, Chile, 11 minutes
We Can’t Live Without Cosmos – dir. Konstantin Bronzit, Russia, 16 minutes
If I Was God (additional film)
Taking Flight (additional film)
The Short Story of a Fox and a Mouse (additional film)
The Loneliest Spotlight (additional film)
Catch It (additional film)
Prologue – dir. Richard Williams, UK, 6 minutes

Important note: PROLOGUE, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. A beautiful, hand-drawn depiction of a battle scene, there’s violence and some male nudity in it, and it’s not appropriate for young children. We’ll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like. Other than PROLOGUE, the program is acceptable for kids of all ages.
