Manhattan Short Film Festival 2016
Please note, this event has expired.
MANHATTAN SHORT began in 1998, when Founder Nicholas Mason screened 16 short films onto a screen mounted to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street,
Little Italy, in New York City. A year later, the Festival moved uptown to Union Square Park in New York City. In the aftermath of 9/11, MANHATTAN SHORT transformed into a worldwide phenomenon, becoming the only film festival on the planet that unfolds, simultaneously, in more than 250 cinemas on six continents, bringing over 100,000 film-lovers in all corners of the globe together for one week, via the next generation of filmmakers. MANHATTAN SHORT now receives over 600 short film entries from over 45 countries a year. Ten of these entries are selected as finalists in the annual Festival. This Festival is not just one of the largest short film festivals in the world, it is the world’s first global film festival, a global celebration and we are inviting you and your community to become part of it. And the judges of these films are you, the audience.
