Don’t miss the 18th annual Manhattan Short Film Festival, featuring 10 great new shorts from around the world – AND you help select the winner!
During the week of September 25-October 4, more than 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities across six continents will view and vote on the finalists in the 18th annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. Out of a record 678 entries received from 52 countries around the world, the Manhattan Shortprogrammers selected 10 short films as finalists for what festival organizers describe as the “United Nations of Film Festivals.”
What makes the Manhattan Short Film Festival unique is that the audience will not only be watching and enjoying the films, but judging them as well. Each audience member will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film they feel should win. Votes will be tallied at each participating cinema and submitted to festival headquarters where the winner will be announced in New York City, as well as posted on the Manhattan Short website, on Monday, October 5 at 10:00am.
With past finalists achieving the ultimate in recognition by being nominated for, and even winning, the Academy Award in the short film category, the Manhattan Short Film Festival has become known as a breeding ground for the next big thing, and you’re a part of the action!
