The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2013

When: Feb. 8-14 2013

Landmark has the live action and animated nominees beginning Friday, screening in separate packages (with a few bonus animated shorts out of competition to pad out that program). Ed's fave is Buzkashi Boys, about a street urchin and son of a blacksmith who forge an unlikely friendship while playing the national sport of Afghanistan, a polo-style game played with a dead goat. Two of the nominees screened at this year's Heartland: Buzkashi Boys and Head over Heels, an animated short that won the Heartland's top short film prize.
