Over 100,000 Film Lovers Across the Globe Unite for One Week For One Film Festival
Don’t miss the 20th annual Manhattan Short Film Festival coming to The Paramount on September 29, 2017!
From Thursday, September 28, through Sunday, October 8, 2017, 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), which are Finalists in the Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival.
What makes the Manhattan Short Film Festival unique is that the audience will not only be watching and enjoying the films, but judging them as well. Each audience member will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film they feel should win. Votes will be tallied at each participating cinema and submitted to festival headquarters where the winner will be announced in New York City!
With past finalists achieving the ultimate in recognition by being nominated for, and even winning, the Academy Award in the short film category, the Manhattan Short Film Festival has become known as a breeding ground for the next big thing, and you’re a part of the action!
