ANIMATED SHORTS (Running Time: 86 minutes)
Borrowed Time – dirs. Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, USA, 7 minutes
Pearl – dir. Patrick Osborne, USA, 6 minutes
Piper – dir. Alan Barillaro, USA, 6 minutes
Blind Vaysha – dir. Theodore Ushev, Canada, 8 minutes

Asteria (additional film) – 5 minutes
Happy End (additional film) – 6 minutes
---------------------------------
Pear Brandy and Cigarettes – dir. Robert Valley, Canada and UK, 35 minutes
Important note: PEAR BRANDY AND CIGARETTES, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. An inventively animated first-person narration about a troubled friendship, there’s violence, language, sex, and drug use in it, and it’s not appropriate for children. We’ll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like. Other than PEAR BRANDY AND CIGARETTES, the program is acceptable for kids.
