The Oscars Live Action Short Film- shortlist 2013.

I just got to watch the pre-selection for the 2013 Oscars in the Live Action Short Films category, in the theatre at the Academy of Motion Picture arts and Sciences in LA.My favorite right now is Asad. The best trailer is Buzkashi Boys.

The shortlist is 10 long and only 5 get nominated on January 15th. Here are the trailers;
