*Important note: PROLOGUE, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. A beautiful, hand-drawn depiction of a battle scene, there's violence and some male nudity in it, not suitable for young children. We'll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they'd like. Other than PROLOGUE, the program is acceptable for kids of all ages.

Directed By: Sanjay Patel and Nicole Grindle
Young Sanjay, a first-generation Indian-American, is obsessed with television, cartoons and his superhero action figures. He is reluctant to spend time in daily prayers with his devout Hindu father, but a flight of imagination helps him develop a new perspective that he and his father can both embrace.

Every day, a melancholy old bear takes a mechanical diorama that he has created out to his street corner. For a coin, passersby can look into the peephole of his invention, which tells the story of a circus bear who longs to escape and return to the family from which he was taken.

Directed By: Konstantin Bronzit
Two best friends have dreamed since childhood of becoming cosmonauts, and together they endure the rigors of training and public scrutiny, and make the sacrifices necessary to achieve their shared goal.
