Manhattan Short Film Festival

Come and view 10 engrossing short films from around the world at the Manhattan Short Film Festival. Many past shorts have been considered for Academy Awards; two have even won the coveted prize. But this isn’t entirely a passive viewing, as you will vote for your favorite short film and your favorite actor.

As anyone who has been to this event knows, this is one hot ticket—so be sure to get yours in advance! All six showings feature the same 10 short films. The program is roughly 2 1/2 hours including an intermission, but give yourselves extra time to fill out your ballot.

And remember, YOU BE THE JUDGE! You will be given a brochure and voting card so you can vote for your favorite actor and favorite film. Winning filmmakers receive cash and/or filmmaking accessories to further their talent—and they will have their short reviewed by the Academy Award Committee with the possibility of having their film in the running for an Oscar.

We are excited to share this year’s exciting MANHATTAN SHORT collection with you!
