In preparation for the 2017 Academy Awards (Sunday, Feb. 26), the Detroit Film Theatre will screen 10 short films, any of which could take home an award at this year’s ceremony. The films will be separated into two categories — animated shorts and live action shorts — with a 25-minute intermission in between. They range in length from six to 35 minutes. Titles include Borrowed Time, Timecode, Silent Nights, and Pixar’s Piper. Of the 10 films, seven are foreign.
