On Thursday, October 4th, film lovers are invited to the Main Library for the Manhattan Short Film Festival. Join us at 7:00 p.m. in Meeting Rooms A-B-C to watch nine short films (18 minutes and under), and vote for your favorite one! There is no charge to attend.
Established in 1998, the Manhattan Short receives over 1600 short film entries from 75 countries a year. Nine to ten of the entries are selected as finalists, and are packaged and distributed to participating venues across the globe. For one week, over 100,000 film lovers will gather in over 300 cinemas, universities, and museums to view and vote on the films. The film with the most votes will be declared the winner of the 2018 festival. With past finalists going on to be nominated and win Oscars in the short film category, Manhattan Short is a collection of some of the best short films currently screening in the world. www.manhattanshort.com
