By the time you read this, they may have already announced the 5 animated short films nominated for the Oscar. Nevertheless, I'll give you my 5 top shorts of the year:
"Subconscious Password", by the great Chris Landreth - hilarious.
"Feral", a beautiful story about a boy raised by wolves, by Daniel Sousa.
"Hollow Land", by Uri Kranot and Michelle Kranot. Stop-motion animation about immigrants.
"Mr Hublot", by Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares - a beautifully animated CG film with great character design.
