Join us on September 27 and/or October 5 at 6:00 pm in Program Room A, when over 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities across six continents gather in cinemas, museums, and universities for one purpose – to view and vote on the Finalists’ Films in the 22nd 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 to great venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites.

Upon entry, festival attendees are handed a voting card and an official program and asked to vote for the ONE film and actor they feel should win. Votes are tallied by each host venue then emailed to the NYC headquarters. For more information, visit
