Film Fans!-

Chez Artiste is going to showing the Oscar Nominated Short Films (both Animated and Live Action) on Friday February 19th.

The times aren't posted and I can't get a hold of anyone at theatre. I will update as soon as they post the times.

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 Live Action Short! Program includes: The Door (Ireland), about a father who attempts to come to terms with the devastating affects of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster; Instead of Abracadabra (Sweden), about a man named Tomas who is a bit too old to still be living at home with his parents, but his failure to become a magician leaves him with no other choice. At his father's 60th birthday party Tomas gives him, and all his guests, a quite bizarre show; Kavi (India/USA), in which a boy in India who wants to play cricket and go to school is instead forced to work in a brick kiln as a modern-day slave. Unsatisfied with his fate, Kavi must either accept what he's always been told, or fight for a different life even if he's unsure of the ultimate outcome; Miracle Fish (Australia), in which 8-year-old Joe has a birthday he will never forget. After friends tease him, he sneaks off to the sick bay, wishing everyone in the world would go away. He wakes up to find his dream may have become a reality; and The New Tenants (Denmark/USA), in which a prying neighbour, a glassy-eyed drug dealer, and a husband brandishing both a weapon and a vendetta make up the welcome wagon. Amidst the as-yet-unopened boxes and the hopes for a fresh start for the two men, it might just be the worst moving day ever. Their new apartment reveals its terrifying history in a film that is by turns funny, frightening and unexpectedly romantic. Vincent D'Onofrio and Kevin Corrigan star.

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 caf? 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!
