Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films

Film Fans!-

Chez Artiste is going to showing the Oscar Nominated Short Films on Friday February 19th. Animated Shorts start at 7pm, we'll meet in the lobby at 6:30pm.

Afterward we'll head somewhere for drinks & discussion.

I do ask for a $1 donation per person at the event to help me with the Meetup Organizer fees.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Animated Short and more! Program includes: French Roast (France), in which an uptight businessman in a fancy Parisian café who is about to pay his check finds out that he has lost his wallet; Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty (Ireland), in which a grandmother loses the plot as she tells her version of "Sleeping Beauty" to her terrified granddaughter; The Lady and the Reaper (Spain), in which a sweet old lady who is waiting for death so she can see her beloved husband once again is invited to enter death's domain—if someone doesn't ruin it for her; Logorama (Argentina), featuring spectacular car chases, an intense hostage crisis, and wild animals rampaging through the city; and A Matter of Loaf and Death (UK), the latest adventure from Nick Park, in which Wallace & Gromit start a new bread baking business. Although business is booming, Gromit is concerned by the news that a dozen local bakers have 'disappeared' this year, so he turns sleuth to protect his master and solve the escalating murder mystery. Program also features three bonus shorts: Pixar's Partly Cloudy (USA), Poland's The Kinematograph and Canada's Runaway.
Hope to see you at the movies! Juli

    It was helpful and a pleasure to watch these films as a group.

    Missed the event (due to overlong work day), but went the next night for the show. Enjoyed them all. The Lady & the Reaper was too funny, and the drawing of the French and Polish films superb. Wallace always reminds me of Bullwinkle when he's so clueless as Grommit saves him again. But thought the best was Logorama - great story and such not too subtle commentary on our corporate society. See you at the Oscars party.

    I did not realize I would enjoy Shorts so much! I wish these were easier to see. I enjoyed that they were in a group like this to watch several at a time. Thank you Juli for arranging this event, it was a blast. The conversation afterwards at the Hacienda was SO much fun!! Can't wait for the next one.
