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 Animated Shorts Program will include:

• Daughter (Dcera) (Czech Republic): In a hospital room, the Daughter recalls a childhood moment when as a little girl she tried to share her experience with an injured bird with her Father. A moment of misunderstanding and a lost embrace has stretched into many years all the way to this hospital room.

• Hair Love (USA): It's up to Daddy to give his daughter, Zuri, an extra-special hairstyle in this story of self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters.

• Kitbull (USA): “Kitbull” reveals an unlikely connection that sparks between two creatures: a fiercely independent stray kitten and a pitbull. Together, they experience friendship for the first time.

• Memorable (France): The world appears to be changing for Louis, a painter, and his wife Michelle. In fact, recently all sorts of strange things have been happening to them.

• Sister (China/USA): A man thinks back to his childhood memories of growing up with an annoying little sister in China in the 1990s. What would his life have been like if things had gone differently?

The program will also include additional animated films as bonus material.
