Event description

Description

Once again, ArtYard is excited to present the Oscar Nominated Films of the Year.

This Event starts at 8:00 PM.

At 8pm, top awards season strategist and publicist Cynthia Swartz will join us for a conversation about all things Oscar prior to the screening of the live action Academy short films. Swartz, a 30-year film and awards veteran, has worked for a wide array of studios, financing and production companies, filmmakers and talent, including Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird and Steven Spielberg’s The Post this year.

LIVE ACTION SHORTS (Running Time: 99 minutes)
Live Action – R (violence and some language)


DeKalb Elementary – Reed Van Dyk, USA, 20 minutes

Inspired by a 911 call placed during a school shooting incident in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Silent Child – Chris Overton and Rachel Shenton, UK, 20 minutes

THE SILENT CHILD centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl named Libby who is born into a middle class family and lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication.

My Nephew Emmett – Kevin Wilson, Jr., USA, 20 minutes
In 1955, a Mississippi preacher tries to protect his 14-year-old nephew, Emmett Till from two racist killers out for blood. Based on true events.

The Eleven O’Clock – Derin Seale and Josh Lawson, Australia, 13 minutes

The delusional patient of a psychiatrist believes he is actually the psychiatrist. As they each attempt to treat each other the session gets out of control

Watu Wote/All of Us – Katja Benrath and Tobias Rosen, Germany, 22 minutes

For almost a decade Kenya has been targeted by terrorist attacks of the Al-Shabaab. An atmosphere of anxiety and mistrust between Muslims and Christians is growing. Until in December 2015, muslim bus passengers showed that solidarity can prevail.


Beginning in March, the admission price of FilmYard screenings will be raised from $6.00 to $8.00. (Please keep in mind that Eventbrite charges an additional $1.07 per ticket). ArtYard is committed to providing affordable creative programming, and the new price is still lower than any comparable offering in our area. In the last six months, we have made many improvements, including building a new screen, installing more comfortable seats, upgrading the projection and sound equipment, and hiring a professional projectionist. While an $8.00 ticket does not begin to cover these costs, we believe it will help us move toward our goal of making ArtYard financially sustainable in the long term. Thank you for your support!
