Join us, when over 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities across six continents gather in cinemas, museums and universities for one purpose… to view and vote on the finalists’ films in the 18th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival.
MANHATTAN SHORT is not a touring festival; rather, it is an instantaneous celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great films to great venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites. If the film festival experience truly is about getting great works in front of as many eyes as possible, MANHATTAN SHORT offers the ultimate platform—one that sees its films screened in Sydney, Mumbai, Moscow, Kathmandu, Vienna, and Cape Town as well as to cinemas in all fifty of the United States and beyond.
You be the judge! The Judges of the finalists’ films are you. Audiences at each venue will be handed a voting card upon entry to each cinema and asked to vote for the ONE film they think should win. Votes are tallied by each cinema and sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ. The over all winner is announced on Monday October 5, 2015.
