Manhattan Short is a celebration of short films and was established in 1998 on the streets of New York City. Today, it has transformed into a worldwide phenomenon as it screens 9 compelling shorts in 500+ cinemas simultaneously during the week of September 23 to October 3, 2021. Manhattan Short doesn’t have judges award the short films. Instead, they allow the audience (i.e. You) to be the judge. The audience votes for their choice of Best Film and Best Actor. Then on the last day of the festival, the short films with the most votes are announced as the winners. Manhattan Short is for film lovers who want to experience unique and riveting stories from all around the world.
The Final Ten Manhattan Short finalists hail from eight countries with films from U.K, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, Norway, Italy, and Canada, alongside two films each from France and the USA. These Final Ten Films represent the best short films from among 970 submissions from 70 countries received by Manhattan Short for 2021, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films worldwide.
