Watch Oscar nominated live action short film Nefta Football Club
The latest of the Oscar nominated shorts we are focussing on ahead of the Academy Award is Nefta Football Club, which hails from France. Directed by director Yves Piat, it tells the story of two young football mad boys who stumble upon something unusual which creates unexpected events. It was made in 2018 and not long after debuting picked up an audience award at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, one of the circuit's biggest and highly-regarded short-film festivals. Over the past couple of years it has been selected to appear in almost 100 festivals and collected 65 awards - which is a pretty impressive success rate. This one is completely free to watch, so hit play below to see Nefta Football Club before it arrives at the Oscars.
In the south of Tunisia, two football fan brothers bump into a donkey lost in the middle of the desert on the border of Algeria. Strangely, the animal wears headphones over its ears.
