Filmgoers in RI can unite with over 100,000 film lovers worldwide when the 16th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival takes place at the JAC on September 27 & 28 at 8:00pm ($10 entry fee at the door). This year, MANHATTAN SHORT recieved a record breaking 628 short film entries from 48 countries, with films from Finland, UK, Australia, France, Ireland and the USA, making up the ten finlalists. These films will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Audiences at each cinema will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film they think should win. Votes will be sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ with the winner announced at ManhattanShort.com on Sunday Oct 6 at 10pm (EST)
In my 16 years of programming MANHATTAN SHORT this is by far the strongest show we have ever had. From the first scene to the last, these films will command every second of the audiences attention. It's anyone's guess who will win the Gold Medal. This event is never going to cable, DVD or any form of digital download, if you don't get along to your venue then you missed" said Founding Director Nicholas Mason.
