The 27th Annual
Academy Award® Shorts
Save the date to see Academy Award®-nominated short subjects—films running 40 minutes or less—in animated, live action and documentary categories. One of the first places in the nation to offer this program, Wichita’s series attracts hundreds of film fans annually.
Enjoy animated, live action and documentary categories at the 21st Street Warren Theatre and the Orpheum Theatre. As you attend, be sure to vote for your favorites so we can determine if Wichita's favorites match the Academy's winners.
All showings are FREE! (Just a note - films are not rated and may not be suitable for all audiences.)
