Here's where to watch 2021 Oscar-nominated short films in Austin
You pressed play on "Nomadland" on Hulu. You shelled out some dollars for early access to "Promising Young Woman" on demand. It's not hard to find this year's best picture nominees for the Academy Awards. But what about those short films?
If you're ready for an in-person theatrical experience or still want to chill at home during the pandemic, you can catch all three programs from ShortsTV — animated, live action and documentary shorts — starting April 2 through local movie theaters.
Violet Crown Cinema is offering them as options for its RSVP Cinema private theater rental program.
Alamo Drafthouse is screening the animated and live action shorts on select dates and tickets are now on sale; tickets for the documentary shorts are "coming soon," according to their website.
