According to reports, the six-minute film, which stars K-Dot and Zola's Taylour Paige as a quarreling couple, played in West Los Angeles' Laemmle Royal Theater from June 3 to June 9, allowing it to receive an Oscar nomination. pgLang and Dave Free played one screening of the short film in the main 180-seat theater per day, with security collecting the phones of the movie-goers — most of whom were family and friends, but around 20 members of the general public were allowed to purchase tickets to each screening.
Aside from Lamar, Taylor Swift's 14-minute All Too Well: The Short Film also qualifies for the same category after it showed at the AMC Lincoln Square from November 12 to November 18.
