Staff Pick: Oscar shorts at the Gateway

By Columbus Alive
From the January 30, 2014 edition

You’d think with our seemingly ever-shortening attention spans, we’d pay more attention to short films. Wait … what was I saying?

Oh, yeah, short films. What used to be probably the most underseen aspect of the field of Oscar nominees has gotten a little more attention in recent years, thanks to the theatrical releases of the entire Oscar-nominated short films.

The shorts are divided into three separate programs by Oscar category: Best Animation, Best Live Action and Best Documentary. Tickets are sold for individual programs, but the five nominees in each category add up to a healthy feature length. Oscar completists and film aficionados, plot your weekend.
