This past Thursday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced the shortlist for the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short. We are thrilled to announce that WINTER LIGHT is one of the 10 finalists!
Our deepest gratitude to the members of the Academy’s short film branch for considering and advancing our film in this competition. The five nominees will be announced on the morning of January 14th – right now, WINTER LIGHT has a 50/50 chance of being nominated for an Oscar!
Here is the Academy’s official press release, which was picked up Thursday morning by Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, and many other trade publications:
Thank you to all of you, who have supported and sustained this project for so long. It’s been said before and it will be said again, because it’s true: none of this would have happened without you.
Onwards, and stay tuned!
– Team WINTER LIGHT
