It’s one of my favorite movie times of the year as Cincinnati World Cinema brings you the latest edition of the British Arrow Award winning commercials. That’s right…commercials. These little mini-movies, created for television and cinema use in the UK that offer up more creativity and imagination than what we usually get on this side of the pond. After enduring yet another seemingly endless onslaught of droning prescription medicine plugs and snarky, repulsive political whines, it’s a real treat to actually enjoy watching spots that can be funny, whimsical, or even frightening without insulting your intelligence.

Movie Review: Oscar nominated shorts

Mar 7, 2014

The annual movie awards season is pretty much over for another year. But once again, you still have a chance to see some of the nominated films that never make it to everyone. The annual gathering of the Oscar Nominated Short Subjects returns once again to Cincinnati World Cinema next weekend. These films are categorized by live action and animated, and in order to give more variety to the arrangement, Cincinnati World Cinema mixes them up and adds some bonus films that didn’t make the cut. The two separate programs are then scheduled twice each, so you have a chance to see them all at once or on different days.

It’s time again for The Carnegie’s popular Art of Food exhibit and gourmet event. David Delegator learns all about this unique combination of art that captures the eye and taste that captures the imagination from The Carnegie’s exhibitions director, Matt Distel.
