Hungarian short film Mindenki (Sing) has been nominated for an Oscar after beating over 70 contenders to make the list.

The film, directed by Kristóf Deák, has already won a whole host of international film awards and is tipped to win the Oscar by film critics. 

Sing has already won the Grand Prix prize at the Short Shorts Film Festival in Tokyo, the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Kids category, and an award at the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.

The film is based on a true story and is set in Budapest in 1991, running for just 25 minutes. It follows an award-winning school choir, their teacher and a new girl in class whose arrival might expose the dark truth behind their fame.

The other nominees in the Live Action Short Film category are Timecode, Silent Nights, Ennemis Intérieurs, and La Femme et le TGV.
