It’s about a couple weeks before the 2016 Oscar Awards dole out cooper looking statuettes to Hollywood’s best and brightest, but down near the Port of Los Angeles, not far from the glamour of studio lots and paparazzi shots, the San Pedro International Film Fest imports a special screening of Academy Award nominated films in the Best Live Action Short Film category Saturday night at the Historic Warner Grand Theatre. In general, short films are hard to find in any movie theatre, and in any market, they just don’t bring in the $15 popcorn munching audiences, so Saturday presents a rare opportunity to actually view nominated short films before the the Oscars on February 28th.
Short film screening starts at 7:00 p.m. & general admission tickets are $20, Seniors & kids’ tickets are $10 and students pay $15 with ID. Get advance online tickets at: Brown Paper tickets. Warner Grand Theatre is located at 478 W. Sixth St. in San Pedro.
Best Live Action Short Films:
“Ave Maria” by Basil Khalil and Eric Dupont is short film about five nuns living in the West Bank find their routine disrupted when the car of a family of Israeli settlers breaks down outside the convent.
