Closing-Night Shorts
César-Nominated Shorts

Sunday, February 9, 2020

This special closing-night program will celebrate some of the best short animated films from the past year.

On January 29, the César Awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscars, will announce its 2020 nominees. Animation First will screen all the finalists in the Best Animated Short category, alongside other notable films, including The Magnificent Cake! (Winner, 2018 Toronto International Film Festival), Memorable (short list, 2020 Academy Awards), and I’m Going Out for Cigarettes (Nominee, 2020 Annie Awards).

This is a rare opportunity for US audiences to see these acclaimed works on the big screen.
