Don’t miss the best short animated films of the year. This category always packs a punch with short films that can be anything from adorable and sweet to dark and harrowing. Past winners include Hair Love (2019) and The Windshield Wiper (2022).

PLEASE NOTE: The 2023 program includes a brief instance of non-sexual nudity in the program and one short animated film that is not family friendly. The filmmakers have placed the film, My Year of Dicks, at the end of the program with a brief pause built in for anyone who would like to leave the theater at that time.
