Irish Short Makes Oscar Longlist

Earlier this week, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the 10 animated short films that will continue in the voting process for this year’s Oscars. The 10 films, picked from 56 qualified shorts, included Irish short The Missing Scarf, from Irish director and animator Eoin Duffy (and narrated by actor George Takei – aka Hikaru Sulu of Star Trek.)

On a quest to find his missing scarf, Albert the squirrel unearths problems far beyond his own.

The short is described as "A black comedy exploring some of life's common fears: fear of the unknown, of failure, rejection, and finally the fear of death. All delivered under the misleading tone of a child's storybook reading."

The final five nominees will be announced in January ahead of the ceremony on March 2nd.
