2021 Oscar-Nominated Short Films

Friday, April 16 - 7:00 PM


Greatly reduced capacity for this event.

For the 16th consecutive year, Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures present the Oscar-Nominated Short Films. The Paramount Theater is pleased to bring to audiences 2 of the 3 categories – Animated and Live Action. This is your annual chance to predict the winners (and have the edge in your Oscar pool)! A perennial hit with audiences around the country and the world, don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, April 25th.

From the distributor: Please note, the Animated Shorts hold a PG-13 rating. In IF ANYTHING HAPPENS, parents mourn their child, killed in a school shooting. GENIUS LOCI contains profanity, smoking, and very brief nudity. The program overall, while excellent, deals with some tough issues and a few of the films are not suitable for children under 12.
