Attention all film lovers and film makers:
The Public Theatre will be hosting the extraordinary global MANHATTAN SHORT film festival. In 2017 Manhattan Short received 1615 entries from 75 countries around the world. The TEN finalists will be screened more than 1000 times in over 250 cities on six continents over a one week period and as an audience member YOU will get to cast your vote for the winner.
ALL FILMS WILL QUALIFY FOR OSCAR NOMINATION!
MANHATTAN SHORT LOVES OSCAR! Finalists will be part of the MANHATTTAN SHORT Oscar Qualifying Run. This means all selected films will screen for a full week at a cinema in the county of Los Angeles. This run qualifies every film selected in MANHATTAN SHORT for the Oscars.
MANHATTAN SHORT FILMS HAVE BEEN TO THE OSCARS BEFORE! Many past Finalists from MANHATTAN SHORT have been nominated for an Oscar (SHOK and Bear Story from 2015, to name just two). 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 cinemas and loyal audiences champion those films and filmmakers through social media all the way to the podium!
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to see the next generation of feature filmmakers from around the world. For more information: www.manhattanshort.com
*All tickets will be held at "Will Call", where you will pick them up and receive your ballots.
