Just in time for its 22nd annual Hollywood Awards Night celebration on Sunday, April 25, Tampa Theatre will once again partner with ShortsHD™ to present the popular OSCAR®-Nominated Animated Short Films program:

  • Burrow: A young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal to her neighbours her imperfections, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble. USA / 6 min
  • Genius Loci: One night, Reine, a young loner, sees among the urban chaos a moving oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide. France / 16 min
  • Opera: Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and former Pixar animator Erick Oh, Opera is an animation project that can be defined as a contemporary animated edition of the Renaissance fresco mural paintings. USA / 9 min
  • If Anything Happens I Love You: Grieving parents struggle with the loss of their daughter after a school shooting. An elegy on grief. USA / 12 min
  • Yes-People: One morning an eclectic mix of people face the everyday battle, such as work, school and dish-washing. As the day progresses, their relationships are tested and ultimately their capacity to cope. Iceland / 8 min

Plus three additional animated shorts:

  • Kapaemahu: USA / 8 min
  • The Snail and the Whale: UK, Germany / 26 min
