The five short films nominated for best animated short for the 92nd Academy Awards.

KITTBULL | Rosana Sullivan, USA, 9 min.
A fiercely independent stray kitten and a chained-up pit bull experience friendship for the first time.
MEMORABLE | Bruno Collet, France, 12 min.
Painter Louis and his wife Michelle are experiencing strange events. Their world seems to be mutating. Slowly, furniture, objects, and people lose their realism. They are “destructuring,” sometimes disintegrating.
SISTER | Siqi Song, China/USA, 8 min.
A man remembers his childhood and growing up with an annoying little sister in 1990s China. How would his life have been if things had gone differently?
Please note, the themes tackled in this year’s animated program are quite heavy: the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. For this reason, this year's animated shorts program has been given a PG-13 MPAA rating as some themes may not be suitable for children under 12 years of age.
