Running Time: 1h. 26m.
This line-up and running time may change.
Important note: PROLOGUE, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. A beautiful, hand-drawn depiction of a battle scene, there’s violence and some male nudity in it, and it’s not good for young children. We’ll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they would like. Other than PROLOGUE, the program is acceptable for kids of all ages.
