Magnolia Pictures and Shorts International are once again bringing their shorts film program to theaters across the country. Showcasing the Academy Award-nominated Live Action and Animated Short Films, the series gives audiences the rare chance to see all the nominees in one viewing -- not to mention, it will give you the edge in winning your Oscar pool.

Check the official Web site for a full listing of theaters running the program. The films are running in select cities right now, and expanding to more theaters in the weeks up until the Academy Awards on March 7.

To give you a little more scoop on what to be really excited for, we've put together some short thoughts on the short films.
