It’s time for the 2021 edition of the Weirdcademy Awards, the premier (only) awards contest focused on weird films, chosen by weird film fans. That means shorts as well as features. We’ve collected all five nominees for 2021′s Weirdest Short of the Year together in one place, for ease of voting. You can cast a vote for your favorite once every 24 hours until March 27 at 12:00 Noon EST. Cameron Jorgensen, 366 Weird Movies under-appreciated shorts Czar, discovered and selected these unusual films through his own research. This year’s slate includes public bleeding, a taxidermy musical, therapeutic schadenfreude, hypnotic barrel organs, and service industry trancing.
