Update: DC Shorts winner "God of Love" nominated for an Oscar
The Oscars made history Tuesday... by nominating a live-action short we've actually seen! "God of Love," by NYC filmmaker Luke Matheny, was a breakout hit at the DC Shorts fest last September (and, maybe not coincidentally, one of the bigger-budget shorts, at $25,000). The bittersweet 15-minute black-and-white comedy about Cupid as a Brooklyn hipster came into Washington with a Student Oscar already under its belt (Matheny made it for his NYU film-school thesis) and went on to with the festival's Audience Choice prize. And lucky for you, it's already scheduled for another set of screenings this weekend, at DC Shorts' "Rewind." "God of Love" will be on a bill with several other shorts at 9:30 p.m. Friday and 10 p.m. Saturday at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street NE.
