February 7 & February 8
For two nights only, Fresno Filmworks proudly presents an exclusive presentation of The Oscar-Nominated Short Films 2020, just a day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its winners. For the 15th straight year, Magnolia Pictures and ShortsTV continue the tradition of sharing the world’s best short-form cinema with the Central Valley in three categories: animation, live action, and documentary. The two evenings will feature five full programs of Academy Award-nominated short movies, ahead of the Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 9. Tickets cost $10 general admission, $8 students and seniors, and a special $15 double-feature ticket for any two programs. Assistive listening services are not available for these films.
