Animated Shorts: PG-13. The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are quite heavy – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. The program overall is rather melancholy, and while there’s nothing especially objectionable within, most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. The films are all very good, but adult audiences will appreciate them much more than kids.
Live Action Shorts: R, as usual. Thankfully a lot lighter than last year’s Live Action program! But it still deals with adult themes and issues, and is not for children.
Documentary Shorts: R, as usual. The Documentary program deals with global political issues – the refugee crisis, the education of girls and women in Afghanistan, activism in Ferguson MO. Very strong doc program this year.
