Time: 6:00 pm
Held on September 29, October 2 or October 6, 2019, when over 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities across six continents gather in Cinemas, Museums, Libraries and Universities for one purpose…to view and vote on the Finalists’ Films in the 22nd Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival.
Upon entry, festival attendees are handed a Voting Card and an Official Program. Attendees will view (10) short films and will vote for the ONE Film and Actor they feel should win. Votes are tallied by the library then emailed to MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival’s NYC headquarters.
Every film selected as a Finalist in the 2019 MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival will be eligible to enter the Oscars. MANHATTAN SHORT is in compliance with the rules governing the Oscar Awards set forth by the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences. A.M.P.A.S.
MANHATTAN SHORT films have been to the Oscars before! Many past Finalists from MANHATTAN SHORT have been nominated for an Oscar (Fauve from 2019, and SHOK and Bear Story from 2015, to name a few). Our audiences and cinemas love nothing more than seeing a film they voted for at MANHATTAN SHORT at the Oscars. Once a nominee is announced, our partnering festival screening venues and loyal audiences champion those films and filmmakers through social media all the way to the podium!
This program will repeat on Sunday, October 6 at 2:00 p.m. This program will last approximately 2 hours with a 10 minute intermission. You will view 10 short films in total. This program is for adults. These films have not been rated.
Registration is suggested, but not mandatory.
