Short Shorts at the Crest Theater

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 Looking for octopi, out-of-body experiences, and a romance that takes place entirely in a public restroom? You’ll find them in some of 2009’s Oscar-nominated short films, which will be showing at the Crest Theater from the sixth to the twelfth of February.

Ten animated and five live-action short films are being presented, with entries from all around the world. The live-action and animated films are being shown on different programs, with each program requiring a separate ticket for admission. In addition to the five Oscar-nominated animated films, five "Commendable" films are also being shown on the animated program.

Many of the films have already gotten critical acclaim, among them "Oktapodi," an animated short by the French Director Julien Bocabeille, which follows two octopi as they attempt to escape from a restauranteur, and "New Boy," a live-action short by Irish Director Steph Green, an adaptation of a short story about a nine year old African refugee named Joseph experiencing his first day of school in Ireland.

The Crest Theater is located at 1013 K street, with parking available in the garage on 10th and L streets. Movie times and other information on the Crest’s upcoming events can be found by calling (916) 442-7378 or by visiting the Theater’s website.

Will any readers be attending?  Does anyone have a story or opinion about the Crest or any of the short films playing?
