FESTIVAL SEPT 26-OCT 6
Stereofly attended the Manhattan Short last year for it's showing at Nickelodeon, a film festival that involves crowd voting over six continents in a span of a week for a selection of 10 short films. We had a lot of fun, and each attendee can vote for Best Film and Best Actor. Votes are sent through to Manhattan Short HQ with the winner announced at ManhattanShort.com this year on Monday Oct 6, at 10 a.m.
"This film festival will unite people in all corners of the globe, from Sydney to Mumbai, from Buenos Aires to Kathmandu and Cairo. Venues also include cinemas in 20 cities in the Ukraine, 40 cities in Russia, and 120 Cinemas in 47 States in the USA. In times like these, cross-border events like Manhattan Short that contribute towards greater tolerance and understanding are needed now more than ever," said Nicholas Mason, Manhattan Short Founding Director.
The first Manhattan Short was held in 1998, when 16 short films were shown onto a screen mounted on the side of a truck in Little Italy's Mulberry Street in New York City, and has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon. Manhattan Short is currently the only film festival on the planet that unfolds, simultaneously, in cinemas around the world.
