Join us on either September 26, September 30 or October 3, 2021, 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 24th  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 the library 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 2021 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 onsite in the Library’s Lower Level meeting room.

This program will be repeated on Thursday, September 30, 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday, October 3 at 1:30 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. Registration is Required. Register below or call the Library at 734-426-4477.

During the fall of 2021, the Dexter District Library will require registration for all indoor, in-person programs.  Registrants will need to register all members of their party.  During this time, only pre-registered attendees will be seated.  To provide for adequate social distancing, the Library will need to limit the number of in-person attendees at each program.  Past attendance patterns for in-person events would frequently exceed current COVID-19 capacity limits.  Walk-ins cannot be accommodated.  The Library will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and the Library Board will review these requirements on a monthly basis.
