Facebook is upping its video game again: ShortsHD has kicked off its Summer of Animation season by premiering three short movies exclusively on the social network. Each will run for one week.

The titles include Sam Chen’s Oscar-nominated film, Amazonia, which premiers 10-17 July, Serguei Kouchnerov’s animated short Hybrid Union, which goes live 17-24 July, and Nullarbor, the award-winning animated film set in the barren landscape of Australia’s Nullabor Plain. Nullarbor goes live on Facebook 24-31 July.

“The animated shorts have been an annual staple of exceptional visual storytelling within the ShortsHD library for years, and they are some of the best performing movies in our Oscars theatrical release,” said Carter Pilcher, CEO at ShortsHD. “We are delighted to expand our digital reach by showcasing our Summer of Animation special with Facebook users by premiering these three animated masterpieces.”
