Oscar Shorts Go Virtual
Watch this year’s Oscar-nominated short films from the comfort of your home! The Art Center is thrilled to announce that we are a virtual venue for the Oscar-Nominated Short Films, presented by Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures. As in years past, Des Moines audiences will be able to see the nominees in all three categories, Documentary, Live-Action, and Animation, on the weekends leading up to the Academy Awards broadcast on Sunday, April 25.

  • “Feeling Through” / Directed by Doug Roland / 19 minutes / A late-night encounter on a New York City street leads to a profound connection between a teen-in-need and a DeafBlind man.
  • “The Letter Room” / Directed by Elvira Lind / 30 minutes / When a corrections officer is transferred to the letter room, he soon finds himself enmeshed in a prisoner's deeply private life.
  • “The Present” / Directed by Farah Nadulsi / 25 minutes / On his wedding anniversary, Yusef and his young daughter set out in the West Bank to buy his wife a gift. Between soldiers, segregated roads and checkpoints, how easy would it be to go shopping?
  • “Two Distant Strangers” / Directed by Travon Free and Martin Desmond Roe / 29 minutes / Cartoonist Carter James' repeated attempts to get home to his dog are thwarted by a recurring deadly encounter that forces him to re-live the same awful day over and over again.
  • “White Eye” / Directed by Tomer Shushan / 21 minutes / A man finds his stolen bicycle, which now belongs to a stranger. While attempting to retrieve it, he struggles to remain human.

How Virtual Cinema Works
Shorts HD has partnered with Eventive as the video sharing platform for these screenings. After you register for the screening(s) you’d like to view, you will receive a general confirmation from the Art Center. This will NOT contain the Eventive link/password for the screening. The Eventive link/password will be provided to the email you used to register the Friday morning before the screening opens.
