As the film award season gets into full swing, we celebrate the under-appreciated genre of short films. Pulling recently preserved works from the Academy Film Archive collection, this Saturday Cinema features rarely seen Academy Award winners and nominees in the categories of animated or live-action shorts. From beautiful line-drawn animations to painstaking claymation to radical experiments in aural and visual associations, Forgotten Nominees showcases the creative power of short cinema.

Jimmy the C (1977, 4 min.) by Jimmy Picker

Frank Film (1973, 9 min.) by Caroline and Frank Mouris

Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass Double Feature (1966, 6 min.) by John Hubley
