The Oscar shortlist for shorts always seems to be way off the mark. If you look at what shorts were selected by A-list festivals (Cannes, Berlin etc) and then the quality of what ends up at the Oscars there is a huge disparity. Often, with student level work passing through. It's very odd. Would be great to see this section curated with more focus and taste in the future so we really do get to acknowledge the world's best short filmmakers.

Death of a shadow is brilliant. I recommend to everybody.
