Staff Pick: Screenings of Oscar-nominated short films

As a rule of thumb, short films don’t get big marketing budgets or box office debuts. But thanks to the Speed Cinema, you get a chance to see these Oscar-nominated shorts on the silver screen. Live-action shorts air Friday and Wednesday; documentary shorts air Saturday, Sunday and Thursday; and animated shorts (my personal favorite) air Saturday.

Friday, Feb. 10–16
