It's the MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL! And what, pray tell, does that mean? A whole lot of radness, let me tell you...
An extraordinary global event will take place the week of September 26th to October 3rd 2010 when over 100,000 people in over 200 cities across six continents gather in Cinemas, Galleries, Museums and Cafes for one purpose...to view and vote on our Finalists' Films in the Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival
Our mission is to unite audiences across all seven continents of the globe for one week via the most compelling short films submitted each year. One World One Week One Festival is emblazoned within the rings that surround the Festivals Logo and it is this mantra that sets us apart from any other film event of the year.
NOTE: MANHATTAN SHORT is NOT an ONLINE Film Festival. Films are distributed to our individual partnering cinemas throughout the world. MANHATTAN SHORT is not a Touring or traveling Film Festival...it is the world's first Global Film Festival, taking place in over 200 cities across 6 continents during one week. For a filmmaker who wants to get their short film out there, there is no greater test then MANHATTAN SHORT.
Our partnering cinemas are situated in Asia, Australia, Europe, South America and North America, including venues in all 50 States of the United States. In 2010 we will be adding venues in Africa to the event.
