Two Irish films make the Oscar shortlist!

Two Irish films, both set in Northern Ireland, are contenders for next year's Oscar Live-Action Short award!

SLR directed by Stephen Fingleton and Boogaloo and Graham directed by Michael Lennox are in the running for the acclaimed accolade.

There are a further eight films on the short list and the academy will go on to choose three to five for consideration for the big prize.

The nominations will be announced in January of next year and the annual, world-famous ceremony will take place the following month.

Fingers crossed, guys!
