Manhattan Short Film Festival

October 3 & 4, 2019
7:00 pm at The Arts Center

Join us October 3 & 4, 2019 when over 100,000 film lovers unite in over 350 cinemas across 6 continents to view and vote on the finalists films in the 22nd Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival!

MANHATTAN SHORT is the only event of its kind. The Final Nine are screened simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audiences in each participating venue. By virtue of their selection by MANHATTAN SHORT, each short film is automatically Oscar-qualified.

The ten MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from five countries with films from Iran, France, Finland, USA, and three films from the United Kingdom. These Final ten short films represent the best short films among 1250 submissions from 70 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2019, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films.

You Be the Judge! Will MANHATTAN SHORT audiences select any Oscar winners this year? They did two years ago! MANHATTAN SHORT’s 2019 Final Nine will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Viewers will become instant film critics as they are provided a ballot to vote for the Best Film and Best Actor. The world’s directors and actors anxiously await Jamestown area votes.

Admission is $15 / $10 for Arts Center members. Pay at the door.
