American director Gregg Helvey's 19-minute film Kavi, about a young Indian boy who wants to play cricket and go to school, but is forced to work in a brick kiln, lost the best short film, live action Oscar to The New Tenants.

Joachim Back and Tivi Magnusson walked away with the award for telling the story of a prying neighbour, a glassy-eyed drug dealer, and a husband brandishing both a weapon and a vendetta in The New Tenants.
