See this film series: The 2012 Oscar Shorts @ the ICA

The joke is that those who make the shortest films make the longest Oscar acceptance speeches, but when you compare the shorts to some of the feted features you might find that it might be justified. The ICA offers an opportunity to see for yourself when over the next three weeks it presents the shorts nominees in all three categories: live-action, documentary, and animation. On Monday, February 20 they will show Live Action at 1 pm, Documentary at 3:15 pm, and Animation at 11 am. Of the five shorts represented in the latter selection Phoenix film critic Gerald Peary especially recommended Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby's Wild Life for its old-fashioned, hand-painted beauty. The programs will be repeated through March 11. The ICA is at 100 Northern Ave, Boston | $10; $8 students | 617.478.3103 or
