Oscar nominated shorts will be screening at the IFC Center starting this Friday, Feb. 16. Frankly, most of the live-action stuff that was nominated was a little schmaltzy–lots of children breaking the rules to do what’s right, saving their villages from the cynicism of the elders, etc. But the animation is generally pretty great and the shorts that Magnolia is releasing alongside the Oscar stuff are all fantastic, particularly Adam Parrish King’s The Wraith of Cobble Hill, Bill Plympton’s Guide Dog–both of which screened at Rooftop last summer–and One Rat Short, which is pictured above and which you can also watch online here.
