Join Dean Corvino at the Detroit Film Theatre to watch the Academy Award® nominated short documentary films. 

Cost is $5 for the ticket, which can be dropped off at the front desk of the Honors College after you sign up.

The Detroit Film Theatre is delighted to present again this year a program of all of the Academy Award® nominated short documentary films (in addition to the short live-action and animated films, which are playing separately).

Feature-length documentaries have for the past several years enjoyed a higher profile than ever among moviegoers, but just as with the live-action and animated short film categories, short documentaries – which are generally every bit as powerful as the year’s nominated feature-length docs – have enjoyed a rapidly growing base of enthusiasts who love to experience them on the big screen.

Presented this year in partnership with the Detroit Free Press (Freep) Film Festival. (Approximately three hours, with one intermission)

Please arrive at the Detroit Film Theatre (entrance on John R.) no later than 1:45 p.m. Dinner will be served afterwords.
