The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premieres of the 2020 Oscar Nominated Shorts Programs Jan. 31-Feb. 5 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

Now an annual film festival tradition, Sedona audiences will be able to see all of the short films nominated for Academy Awards before the Oscar telecast on Feb. 9. A perennial hit with audiences around the country (and now the world), don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts.

The Oscar-nominated Live Action Shorts Program will include:

• Brotherhood (Tunisia): Mohamed is deeply shaken when his oldest son Malik returns home after a long journey with a mysterious new wife.

• Nefta Football Club (Tunisia/France): Two young brothers come across a donkey in the desert. Strangely, the animal wears headphones over its ears and is carrying bags full of a white powder on its back.

• The Neighbors’ Window (USA): Alli is a mother of young children, frustrated with her daily routine and husband. But her life is shaken up when two free-spirited twenty-somethings move in across the street and she discovers she can see into their apartment.

• Saria (USA): Saria 12, and her sister Ximena, devise a daring plan to escape horrendous abuse in the orphanage that houses them.

• A Sister (Belgium): A night. A car. Alie is in danger. To get by she must make the most important phone call of her life.
