10 Live-Action Shorts Advancing in the Oscars Race

On Wednesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the top 10 live-action shorts moving forward in their voting process for the 89th Academy Awards. Narrowed down from the qualifying 137 films, the final nominees from this top 10 shortlist will be named on January 24th. We are beyond thrilled to see that director Marc Fouchard made the list! His short film, “The Way of Tea” screened at the 2016 Indie Street Film Festival this summer and was a true audience favorite. Congrats to Marc and all of the other filmmakers!
