MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival 2019

Date: Saturday, October 5, 2019 Time: 7:00 pm-9:00 pm Location: Burr and Burton Academy, Riley Center for the Arts  { MAP } Fee: $12 in advance


For one week this fall over 100,000 film-lovers will gather in over 300 cinemas, universities, and museums spanning six continents for one purpose: to view and vote on the ten short films (18 minutes and under), that are finalists in the annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival.

MANHATTAN SHORT is not a touring Festival; rather, it is an instantaneous celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great films and great artists to great venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites. All films selected in MANHATTAN SHORT 2019, will be eligible to enter the Oscars in 2020.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors, $8 for students.

You be the judge! Audiences from around the world are given the opportunity to unite not only to view the films, but to vote for the ONE film they think is best. Votes are tallied at each venue and sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT headquarters in NYC where the winner will be announced on Monday, October 7, 2019. MANHATTAN SHORT is, quite simply, a collection of some of the best short films currently screening in the world today.
