Nominated in 2015, Boogaloo And Graham tells the story of two boys growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, whose father saves two male chickens from a hatchery and gives them to the boys.

The Shore

Helium by Anders Walter (2013) (Denmark) (23m)

Helium won the Best Short Film Oscar in 2014. It is a touching and beautifully made short film about a terminally ill boy, Alfred, who is not particularly enamoured with the prospect of Heaven. The new janitor invents an alternative place called Helium, which is more to Alfred's liking, and forms a relationship with the boy. Anders Walter went on to make the feature film I Kill Giants starring Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar).

The Shore

Curfew by Shawn Christensen (2012) (USA) (19m)
