Detroit Film Theatre Features Program of Oscar-Nominated Short Documentaries



Attention, movie buffs: The Detroit Film Theatre is once again presenting a program of Oscar-nominated short documentaries.

This year's lineup includes titles such as Karma Has No Walls, Facing Fear, and CaveDigger.

via the DIA website:

Feature-length documentaries have for the past several years enjoyed a higher profile than ever among moviegoers, but just as with the live-action and animated short film categories, short documentaries – which are generally no less extraordinary than the year’s celebrated feature-length docs – have been far more difficult to find than features, especially in theaters. This is a great chance to take in all of the nominated short docs prior to the Oscars® being handed out on March 2nd.

Tickets are $8.50 and discounts are available for students and DIA members.
