A perennial hit with audiences around the country and the world, don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. This year, the Academy Awards take place on Sunday, April 25th.

You have until May 8 to begin this program. Once you start watching, you have 48 hours to finish.

Burrow – Madeline Sharafian and Michael Capbarat (U.S., 6 min.)
A young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal to her neighbours her imperfections, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble.

Genius Loci – Adrien Mérigeau and Amaury Ovise (France, 16 min.)
One night, Reine, a young loner, sees among the urban chaos a moving oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide.

Opera – Erick Oh (U.S., 9 min.)
Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and former Pixar animator Erick Oh, Opera is an animation project that can be defined as a contemporary animated edition of the Renaissance fresco mural paintings.

If Anything Happens I Love You – Will McCormack and Michael Govier (U.S., 12 min.)
Grieving parents struggle with the loss of their daughter after a school shooting. An elegy on grief.

Yes-People – Gísli Darri Halldórsson and Arnar Gunnarsson (Iceland, 8 min.)
One morning an eclectic mix of people face the everyday battle, such as work, school and dish-washing. As the day progresses, their relationships are tested and ultimately their capacity to cope.

PLUS A SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL ANIMATED SHORTS (from the shortlist):
Kapaemahu (U.S., 7 min.)
The Snail and the Whale (U.K./Germany, 26 min.)
To: Gerard (U.S., 8 min.)
