MUMBAI: To celebrate Oscar season this month, Tata Sky ShortsTV has planned a power-packed schedule filled with carefully curated Academy acclaimed shorts.

Starting February 10th, every evening at 9pm the channel will premiere a short film previously recognised by the Oscars. The shorts will come from varied genres (Live Action, Animation and Documentary) and will include titles such as The Voorman Problem, Bear Story and The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore among others. 

Tata Sky ShortsTV will also air a special Oscar marathon on the day of the Oscar ceremony (February 24th) with back-to-back Oscar films and interviews with Oscar nominated filmmakers.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Carter Pilcher, Chief Executive of Shorts International Ltd said, “The Oscars is one of the most awaited events by film audiences across the globe each year. ShortsTV has been bringing the Oscar Nominated Short Films to cinema and TV screens around the world for over a decade and we’re thrilled to be bringing them to Indian TV audiences for the first time”.

Speaking on the occasion, Arun Unni, Chief Content Officer, Tata Sky said, “Tata Sky ShortsTV is India’s first ever curated platform for short stories and films. Delivering on the promise of offering the best content to subscribers, premiering the prestigious Oscar recognized short films brought to India by ShortsTV, was an irresistible choice.”

The broadcast of previously nominated Oscar shorts on Tata Sky ShortsTV comes ahead of the theatrical release of the 2019 Oscar Nominated Shorts Films in Indian cinemas, details of which will be announced soon. The 2019 release will be the first time the Oscar Nominated Short Films will be screened in Indian cinemas and will give Indian short film fans the opportunity to see the latest Oscar nominated shorts on the big screen.
