The 2014 Academy Award nominated short films will be showing at Market Street Cinema this week. Showtimes run every day through Thursday, with a screening of the live action program at 4:30 p.m. and two screenings of the animated program at 2 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.
The live action program includes “That Wasn’t Me,” directed by Esteban Crespo, “Just Before Losing Everything,” by Xavier Legrand and Alexandre Gavras, “Helium,” by Anders Walter and Kim Magnusson, “Do I Have You to Take Care of Everything?” by Selma Vilhunen and Kirsikka Saari, and “The Voorman Problem” by Mark Gill and Baldwin Li. The animated nominees (typically a lot better and more interesting) are “Feral,” by Daniel Sousa and Dan Golden, “Get a Horse!” by Lauren MacMullan and Dorothy McKim, “Mr. Hublot,” by Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares, “Possessions,” by Shuhei Morita, and “Room on the Broom,” by Max Lang and Jan Lauchauer.
