Join us on either September 28, September 30 or October 3, 2018, when over 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities across six continents gather in Cinemas, Museums, Libraries and Universities for one purpose…to view and vote on the Finalists’ Films in the 21st Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival.
Upon entry, festival attendees are handed a Voting Card and an Official Program. Attendees will view (10) short films and will vote for the ONE Film and Actor they feel should win. Votes are tallied by each host venue then emailed to MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival’s NYC headquarters.
All films selected will be eligible for an Oscar nomination. MANHATTAN SHORT does a full week’s run in one Cinema in the county of Los Angeles. This theatre booking means every film selected as a Finalist in the 2018 MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival will be eligible to enter the Oscars. MANHATTAN SHORT is now in compliance with the rules governing the Oscar Awards set forth by the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences. A.M.P.A.S.
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!
This program will be repeated on Sunday, September 30, 2:00 p.m. and on Wednesday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m. This program will last approximately 2 hours with a 10 minute intermission. You will view 10 short films in total. This program is for adults. These films have not been rated.
