Join us September 28 to September 30, when more than 100,000 film lovers in over 350 venues across six continents gather to view and vote for their favorite films in the 21st Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival.
Selected from over 1500 submissions, this year’s nine Manhattan Short finalists hail from eight countries with films from Austria, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Kosovo, New Zealand, USA, and two films from the United Kingdom. This year’s Final Nine represent an extraordinary range of film genres that includes intimate dramas, fast-paced animation, spine-tingling tales, a World War II epic, and a film shot entirely underwater.
The Final Nine (shown at every screening) are viewed 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.
