If the reason we haven't seen you out lately is that you've been sequestered at home watching every single nominee in anticipation of the looming 87th Academy Awards, we get it; you like movies. We like movies, too, which is why we're so excited about the fact that we can sequester ourselves at home to watch some of the more difficult-to-find films, the Oscar-nominated short films.
Today, Vimeo On Demand releases the 2015 Oscar® Nominated Shorts Collection, two compilations that include the five films vying for the Oscar for Short Films: Live-Action, and the four films up for Short Films: Animation, respectively. Vimeo will also be including “The Reaper/La Parka” and “White Earth,” two films from the Documentary Short Films category, as an added bonus for those who purchase the package (the documentary shorts are also available to order individually).
And in case you need any more incentive as to why the nine-film compilation is more than worth the $7.99 price tag, HELIUM, the 2014 Academy Award winner for Best Live Action Short is now available to watch for free, courtesy of ShortsHD. Check it out, along with the complete list of 2015 Oscar-nominated short films, below:
