Makes for an all-around delightful package of cartoon inspiration when viewed on the big screen.
As always, there is an eclectic mix.
As a group, these short films sing.
The Oscar-nominated shorts may have smaller running times, but the themes tackled are often big.
The animated shorts theatrical program, especially, gives you a solid bang for your buck ...
While the entries are strong, they're far from definitive.
A delightful group of animated shorts with even the weakest being better than most films at the local cineplex.
My pick: I suspect that this year's winner will be 'Garden Party,' a spectacular debut from new French animation studio Illogic that I am sure we will be seeing a lot more stunning work from.
Finally, Negative Space.... is a joyful, inventive celebration about a son recalling how his father taught him the old school art of suitcase packing, the last of several standouts in this year's slate.
My out-and-out favorite of the bunch -- and among my faves of the year -- is Garden Party, the seven-minute French animated black comedy.
The five animated shorts competing for this year's Academy Award are each satisfying for their clever narratives and visual storytelling.
... a lot of artistry and emotion in a small package.
