Manhattan Short Film Festival

Join us September 28 to October 8, 2017 when over 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities gather in Cinemas, Museums and Universities for one purpose…to view and vote on the Finalist’s Films in the 20th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival.

WHAT IS MANHATTAN SHORT?

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, Vienna and Cape Town to cinemas in all fifty states of the United States and beyond.

MANHATTAN SHORT 2017 OSCAR QUALIFYING RUN

MANHATTAN SHORT LOVES OSCAR! Finalists will be part of the MANHATTTAN SHORT Oscar Qualifying Run. This means all selected films will screen for a full week at a cinema in the county of Los Angeles. This run qualifies every film selected in MANHATTAN SHORT for the Oscars.

MANHATTAN SHORT FILMS HAVE BEEN TO THE OSCARS BEFORE! Many past Finalists from MANHATTAN SHORT have been nominated for an Oscar (SHOK and Bear Story from 2015, to name just two). Our audiences and cinemas love nothing more than seeing a film they voted for at MANHATTAN SHORT at the Oscars. Once a nominee is announced, our partnering cinemas and loyal audiences champion those films and filmmakers through social media all the way to the podium!
