All 15 Oscar Shortlisted Animated Shorts Now Streaming on Animation Showcase

The Animation Showcase has released the entire list of 15 Oscar Shortlisted films in the Best Animated Short Film category, in anticipation of the upcoming 95th Academy Awards ceremony. The collection is now accessible to watch worldwide until the Oscar nominations announcement on Tuesday, January 24.

“While the feature films are widely accessible from theatrical release and major streaming platforms during the Award Season, the short films are often much more difficult to access. Therefore, we couldn’t be more proud to feature the complete collection of Shortlisted Animated Shorts for free, available to all the members of the animation and motion picture industry,” said Benoit Berthe Siward, The Animation Showcase CEO. “This means that for the third year in a row, our platform is the only place in the world where to watch all the shortlisted shorts, alongside The Academy Screening Room.”

This year’s shortlisted animated shorts are:

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On
Marcel the Shell with Shoes On [c/o A24]
Additionally, high profile contender Marcel the Shell with Shoes On (A24), the moving debut animated feature directed by Dean Fleischer Camp, will also be exceptionally accessible to watch worldwide for all industry members of the platform until the Oscars nomination announcement on Jan. 24, alongside exclusive bonus content and featurettes.

Bonuses, Making-ofs, Q&A and Featurettes are also streaming exclusively on the platform, offering insights into most of the animated shorts as well as some of this year’s best animated features. These include a 36-minute special on Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio (titled Handcarved Cinema) as well as a making of for Henry Selick’s Wendell & Wild, also from Netflix; DreamWorks’ The Bad Guys Q&A and Pixar features Turning Red and Lightyear making-ofs.

In addition to streaming animated projects, the industry-only Animation Showcase streaming platform curates acclaimed short films from filmmakers around the world and gives an opportunity to the animation and motion pictures community to discover or rewatch feature films for a limited time.

Last year, the platform provided streaming access for the industry to three-time Oscar-nominated animated documentary Flee, and handled the premiere & worldwide release of 2022 Oscar winning animated short The Windshield Wiper.

All animation industry members and students can easily join the platform by visiting the sign-up portal to request membership and submitting their email address and proof of work in the industry (e.g. IMDb, LinkedIn, Vimeo).
