Is there some way of seeing any of these shorts, including the 56 candidates? Or do you have to be a member of the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch Reviewing Committee? Where do these things appear?

I wonder if screenings could be held at some of the independent theaters in the area, like the Alex in Glendale, the Nuart in Santa Monica, the Aero in Santa Monica or at an Academy theater in Hollywood or Beverly Hills?
