2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts

Tickets On Sale!

This year Bennett Street Films is revisiting our collaboration with the Cowboy Carousel Center (CCC).

Our presentation of the 2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts will take place on Friday, February 24th, 2017 and Saturday 25, 2017. This is different than usual as we are trying to avoid conflicts with other cool things going on in town. The films will show in the micro-theater inside the CCC. Live Action will run Friday evening, Animated will run Saturday afternoon.

Though the Oscar Shorts are unrated, some of you have asked for basic ratings guidelines for the programs:

Animated – PG (mostly). Probably okay for 8 years and up. With one clear exception: Important note: PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. An inventively animated first-person narration about a troubled friendship, there’s violence, language, sex, and drug use in it, and it’s not appropriate for children. We’ll have a warning card come up prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like.

Live Action – PG-15. Huh? 15? Yes. There are several shorts in this year’s program that parents might want to restrict their children from watching. Also, please remember, some audience members can find it uncomfortable to watch mature content while sitting next to children.

2017 Ballot – In case you’d like to vote and see how you do compared to the Academy judges! Download available with purchase of a ticket or you can pre-request a hardcopy and we’ll have it available when you show up at the door.


Last but not at all least, please acknowledge and remember to thank the folks at the Cowboy Carousel Center and the fine folks that make up the Johnson County Arts and Humanities Council. There’s a good chance this wouldn’t be happening without their support.
