Calling all movie fans!
For two nights only, Fresno Filmworks will present the 2018 Oscar-Nominated Short Films at the historic Tower Theatre.
On Friday and Saturday, Feb. 9 and 10, Filmworks will feature five full programs of short films that are competing this year for an Academy Award—just weeks before the winners are announced.
Friday’s programs are: live action shorts at 5:30 p.m. and animated shorts at 8:30 p.m.
Saturday’s programs are: animated shorts at 1 p.m., live action shorts at 4 p.m., and documentary shorts at 7 p.m.
In addition to the world-class films, this year’s event will again feature an Oscar-themed photo booth. Audience members will get a chance to share their night at the Oscars by showing off their outfits on the red carpet and making photo booth pictures, with Hollywood-style props available.
Tickets to single programs cost $10 general admission and $8 for students and seniors. A special $15 double-feature ticket is available for any two programs. You can find more ticket information here.
This marks the 13th straight year that Filmworks has brought the world’s best short-form cinema to central San Joaquin Valley audiences. Linda Knight, Filmworks co-president, says: “Every year, the quality and the diversity of the Oscar shorts programs somehow gets better and better. We can’t wait to share these inspiring selections with the community.”

I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
