Movie: World of Tomorrow
This was a delightful animated short about a little girl being given a tour of the distant future. It's adorable and weird and funny and sad and definitely worth 17 minutes of your time. The art was interesting and fit the subject matter very well, and perhaps my favorite part was the way the little girl's comments and answers were all realistic and age-appropriate even when confronted with crazy science fiction hijinks.
Availability: Streaming on Netflix.
Short Film (Animated): I haven't seen any of the other nominees in this category yet, so I can't say whether I think this was the best, but I thought it was very good and, in a vacuum, I'd say it deserves this.
