The Wichita Public Library will once again host free screenings of the Annual Academy Award Nominated Short Films in 2021, only this time the screenings will all be online.
Wichita Public Library was one of the first organizations in the nation to provide a way for the communities outside of major cities like New York and LA to see the nominated films.
This is the first time in 35 years that the free film screenings will be held virtually. Since 1986 the Library has annually previewed the short films nominated in the animated, live action and documentary categories at various times, dates, and locations, free and open to the public.
The Oscar-nominated short films are each 40 minutes or less, in the categories of Animation, Live Action, and Documentary. Admission is free for all showings.
The films are not rated and may not be suitable for all audiences.
Visit wichitalibrary.org/academyawards to register for the film festival. The titles of this year’s Academy Award short films can be found at that link as well. An email with login information and access codes to view the short films on the online platform will be sent to you by noon Monday, April 5. Once you receive the login information and activate the virtual cinema, you’ll have 72 hours to view the films. (You will need access to a desktop or laptop computer to watch.)
Just to reiterate, the films aren’t rated and may not be suitable for all ages. All showings are FREE!
The 93rd Academy Awards® will be televised on Sunday, April 25, 2021.
