When the 2012 Academy Award nominations were announced yesterday, there must have been plenty of smiles at the National Film Board of Canada. For the eighth time, the Canadian film producer/distributor scored a double nomination in the same category. In this case, Sunday by Patrick Doyon, and Wild Life by Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby, were selected as finalists for Best Animated Short Film.
Thanks to the NFB, you can watch Sunday (above) and Wild Life (below) online for a limited time, along with the NFB's nine Oscar-winning films. The film provider also makes hundreds of free movies available via the web and the iPad -- something to keep in mind for a good rainy day.
