Manhattan Short Film Festival
Opens Friday, September 28
An extraordinary global event takes place the week of September 28th to October 7th 2011 when over 100,000 people in over 300 cities across six continents gather in cinemas, galleries, Universities, museums and cafes for one purpose...to view and vote on our finalists' films in the annual Manhattan Short Film Festival!
Their mission is to unite audiences from all corners of the globe for one week via the most compelling short films submitted to them each year. Our tagline "One World One Week One Festival" is the mantra that sets the Manhattan Short Film Festival apart from any other film event of the year.
Manhattan Short is your chance to see the next generation of filmmakers from around the world. Over the past ten years, six of their films were nominated for Oscars in the short film category. Many of the finalists have gone on to make notable feature films and this festival believes in the notion that it is "The public that creates stars". And for a short film, there is no bigger public than the worldwide public of Manhattan Short.
