Animated Shorts
(Estimated running time: 86 minutes)


Blind Vaysha  dir. Theodore Ushev, Canada, 8 minutes
Young Vaysha was born with unusual sight: her left eye can see only the past and her right eye can see only the future, while the present is a blind spot. Called "Blind Vaysha" by the people of her village, the girl is tormented by the two realities that she cannot reconcile.

Borrowed Time  dir. Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, US, 7 minutes
A sheriff of the Old West returns to the scene of a tragic accident from his past that shaped his life. As memories wash over him, he is engulfed by emotion and must find the strength to carry on with his lifelong quest for redemption.

Pearl  dir. Patrick Osborne, US, 6 minutes
An itinerant musician travels around the country with his young daughter in their old hatchback and juggles his passion for performing with providing his daughter with a stable life. The daughter grows up with a love of music and adventure, and is able to repay her father for nurturing her creativity.

Piper  dir. Alan Barillaro, US, 6 minutes
Young Piper, a sandpiper hatchling, leaves her nest for the first time to hunt for food but is too scared of the crashing waves to reach the yummy morsels hidden in the sand. After meeting an unusual ally, Piper attempts to face her fears and increase her confidence.

Additional animated films highly commended by the Academy:

The Head Vanishes  dir. Franck Dion, Canada, 9 minutes
Asteria  dir. Alexandre Arpentinier, France, 5 minutes
Happy End  dir. Jan Saska, Czech Republic, 6 minutes


Pear Cider and Cigarettes  dir. Robert Valley, Canada/UK, 35 minutes
Hard-living Techno Stypes has been Robert's best friend since childhood, and over the years, Robert has been amazed by Techno's ability to sabotage himself. When Techno is hospitalized in China and needs a liver transplant, Robert goes on a wild ride to get him home to Vancouver.

Important note: PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES will be the last film in the program. It is not appropriate for children. A Parental Guidance warning will screen prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they'd like. Other than PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, the program is acceptable for kids.


Additional animated films that were highly commended by the Academy will be added to the program.
