I’m really looking forward to hosting the Oscar-nominated Animated Shorts at 5:00pm this evening at the Charles. I saw LOGORAMA at Sundance, and am a big Wallace and Gromit fan. Whether or not you can join us this evening, I hope you can fit these two programs in to your weekend. Here’s Mike Sragow’s piece in today’s Sun.

COME SEE THE OSCAR-NOMINATED SHORTS AT THE CHARLES!
Continuing a popular tradition, the Charles will offer two programs this weekend of Academy Award nominated Shorts- Animated and Live Action. These are not to be missed because they are hard to find anywhere else, and this will probably be the only chance you’ll get to see them on the big screen.
This represents a particularly diverse range of filmmaking talents, so we hope you can catch both Shorts Programs. Here’s Bret McCabe’s posting from 2/1710 on the City Paper website.
The Maryland Film Festival has a special commitment to Short Films, programming lots of them, and devoting our Opening Night to them (with crucial support from the Baker Fund). Festival Director Jed Dietz will host the Animated Shorts Program that starts at 5:00PM on Friday. There will be a brief intro and some Q&A afterwards. The whole program runs about 90 minutes.
