ShortsTV released the 2019 Oscar Nominated Short Films (Live Action and Animation) in Indian cinemas over the weekend (22nd February), as well as Guneet Monga’s documentary short film ‘Period. End of Sentence’.
‘Period. End of Sentence’, a film on the taboos around menstruation in India, went on to win the Oscar for best documentary short last night at the 91st Academy Awards. The winners of the Live Action and Animation short categories were ‘Skin’ and ‘Bao’ respectively.
All three Oscar winning short films can be seen by Indian audiences on the big screen in PVR cinemas until March 7th, along with the other nominated live action and animated shorts.
Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Carter Pilcher, Chief Executive of Shorts International Ltd said, “We at ShortsTV are constantly working to raise the profile of great short films from around the world. The Oscar Nominated Short Films release includes the year’s best short movies and we wanted audiences in India to be able to experience them on the big screen for the first time and share in the excitement around one of the most awaited award ceremonies in the world.”
