In the next week, two important short film announcements will be made: the short film line-up at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (this afternoon) and the ten live action short films on the 2012 Academy Award’s shortlist (the ten animated short films on the shortlist have already been announced—view them here).
In a previous post, I claimed I would make some short film Academy Award nominee predictions. Well, here it is... a list of ten live action short films I expect (or hope) will be on the shortlist—in alphabetical order:
West of the Moon (directed by Brent Bonacorso)
Actually, what am I thinking? I can’t list just ten! Here are four more that I think could show up on the shortlist:
African Chelsea (Brent Roske)
Aglaee (Rudi Rosenburg)
The Sea Is All I Know (Jordan Bayne)
The Wind Is Blowing On My Street (Saba Riazi)
Now, let’s see how I do!
Note that the short list will be reduced to between three and five nominations and announced on January 24, 2012—and, more importantly, I reserve the right to delete this post should my predictions prove erroneous.
Update: The short film line-up at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival has been announced—view it here.
