Over 100,000 film-lovers will gather in over 300 cinemas, universities, and museums spanning six continents—for one purpose—to view and vote on the Ten Short Films (18 minutes and under), which are finalists in the 22nd Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival.
What makes the Manhattan Short Film Festival unique is that the audience will not only be watching and enjoying the films, but judging them as well. Each audience member will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film they feel should win. Votes will be tallied at each participating cinema and submitted to festival headquarters where the winner will be announced in New York City!
