The Oscar Shortlist is here! Whatever you think of the Oscars, there’s no denying the prestige they hold in the world of filmmaking. This year all 45 short films contending for Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short, and Best Live Action Short are available for your perusing on Shortverse as part of our Oscar 2023 Shortlist Collection. There’s now one simple place to learn about every short film, watch the available films, and even connect with the filmmakers. Not all are available yet, but with nominations voting coming soon (January 12-17), we expect most films to pop up online over the coming weeks. Check back and we’ll keep this list updated.
