Whether you’re betting on your office Oscar pool or, more importantly, a diehard movie fan looking for great stories, this year’s Oscar nominated short films is now available on cable via Movies on Demand and VOD platforms.
The 2016 Oscar Nominated Short Film Live Action/Select Animation collection can now be streamed via iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Vimeo on Demand, Comcast, and Verizon. On Demand and cable/satellite platforms such as DIRECTV, CenturyLink prism, AT&T U-verse, Xbox, Sony, and Cable Vision are also housing the Oscar nominated short films.
One of the strongest shorts from the diverse field of stories is Day One, a live action narrative about an Afghan-American woman who works as an interpreter in Afghanistan. Her first day on the job is a harrowing ordeal, as she accompanies troops to capture a bomb-maker and also helps his wife deliver her baby after she goes into labor. Directed by Henry Hughes, this 25-minute short is an emotionally compelling look at the devastating toll that is incurred by both sides of this conflict.
