Regular Admission Prices

A rambunctious ride from some of the world’s most creative animators, the 2014 Sundance Film Festival Short Films: Animated program is a 90-minute theatrical program of eight animated shorts from past editions of the January Festival. The 2014 program ranges in vivid style from handmade drawing and painting to puppetry, with stories of love, art, bubbles, nudism, the creation of the universe and what it all means to you.

Oscar is coming of age, against his better judgment. In doing so he must experience the necessary evil of leaving something behind, but can still feel it in the pit of his stomach. (Dir. by Julia Pott, UK, 7 mins.)

It’s Such A Beautiful Day
In the third and final chapter to Don Hertzfeldt’s Everything Will Be OK, Bill finds himself in a hospital struggling with memory problems. (Dir. by Don Hertzfeldt, USA, 23 mins.)

Marilyn Myller
Marilyn maketh. Marilyn taketh awayeth. Marilyn is trying really hard to create something good. For once, her expectation and reality are going to align. It will be epic. It will be tear-jerkingly profound. It will be perfect. Nothing can go wrong. (Dir. by Mikey Please, USA/UK, 6 mins.)

The Obvious Child
Somebody broke the girl’s parents. The rabbit was there when it happened. It was an awful mess. (Dir. by Stephen Irwin, UK, 12 mins.)

Oh Willy…
Willy returns to his naturalist roots as he bungles his way into noble savagery. (Dir. by Marc James Roels & Emma De Swaef, Belgium/France/Netherlands, 17 mins.)

Subconscious Password
Chris Landreth, the director of the Academy Award–winning short Ryan, plays Charles, a man paralyzed by his inability to remember a friend’s name. Thus begins a mind-bending romp through a game show of the unconscious—complete with animated celebrity guests. (Dir. by Chris Landreth, Canada, 11 mins.)

Voice on the Line
The era of nuclear anxiety, the Red scare, and covert CIA plots forever changed the way we engage with the telephone. (Dir. by Kelly Sears, USA, 7 mins.)

Winner of the Short Film Jury Award: Animation, Sundance 2014
A man is hired to compile the definitive history of human existence before the planet blows up. (Dir. by Bernardo Britto, USA, 6 mins.)
