Manhattan Short Film Festival

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

The fan-favorite film festival is back for its 25th year! What is Manhattan Short? Join us when over 100,000 film lovers unite in over 400 venues worldwide to view and vote for the next generation of filmmakers.

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. If the Film Festival experience truly is about getting great works in front of as many eyes as possible, Manhattan Short offers the ultimate platform - one that sees its films screened in Sydney, Mumbai, Moscow, Kathmandu, Vienna, Cape Town, to cinemas in all fifty states of the United States and beyond!

The Judges of the Finalists' Films are you. Audiences at each venue will be handed a voting card upon entry to each cinema and asked to vote for the ONE film they think should win. Votes are tallied by each cinema and sent through to Manhattan Short HQ. The winners will be announced at
