BFI To Host Special Screening of Oscar-Nominated Animated Short Films on 5 Feb

The British Film Institute on London's South Bank is hosting a special screening of the animated short films which have been nominated for an Oscar this year.  

You can see the films on just one night: Friday 5 February 2016 at 7pm. 

The evening is a chance to see some of the best work in our industry, mostly by independent film-makers, and also to hear a Q&A with Richatd Williams, author of The Animator's Survival Kit, who is one of this year's nominees.

What's this about?
To mark the 88th Academy Awards, BFI host screenings of films in the running from several categories, including Best Animated Short.  Remember that these animated shorts can be hard to find, since they generally don't get a wide release, so special screenings like this are often the only way to see them.

What does it cost?
All tickets £11.75, concs £9.20 (BFI Members pay £1.70 less) on sale to BFI Patrons and Champions from Mon 18 Jan 11:30, BFI Members from Mon 18 Jan 12:30 and to the public from Tue 19 Jan 11:30.

What films are being screened?
Bear Story, Prologue, Sanjay's Super Team, We Can't Live Without Cosmos, and World of Tomorrow.

Who will be there?
Richard Williams will be doing a Q&A after the screening to talk about the making of his short film Prologue, which has been nominated both for an Oscar and also for a BAFTA, both in the short animated film category.
