Oscar Shorts 2021: Animated

Some of these animated shorts may not be suitable for younger audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.

Burrow – dir. Madeline Sharafian, Michael Capbarat, USA, 6 minutes, 2020

In Disney and Pixar’s new short film Burrow, a young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal her imperfections to her neighbors, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble. After hitting (bed)rock bottom, she learns there is no shame in asking for help.

Genius Loci – dir. Adrien Mérigeau, Amaury Ovise, France, 16 minutes, 2019

One night, Reine, a young loner, sees among the urban chaos a moving oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide.

Opera – dir. Erick Oh, South Korea/USA, 9 minutes, 2020

Driven by the spirits of Bosch, Michelangelo, Botticelli, and more, award-winning filmmaker and former Pixar animator Erick Oh portrays—in his own signature whimsical and surreal way—the human society and history, filled with beauty and absurdity.

If Anything Happens I Love You – dir. Will McCormack, Michael Govier, USA, 13 minutes, 2020

Grieving parents struggle with the loss of their daughter after a school shooting; an elegy on grief.

Yes-People – dir. Gísli Darri Halldórsson, Arnar Gunnarsson, Iceland, 8 minutes, 2020

One morning, an eclectic mix of people face their everyday battles such as work, school and dish-washing. As the day progresses, their relationships are tested, as is their capacity to cope.
