Film goers in Seattle will unite with audiences in over 300 cities and spanning six continents to view and judge the work of the next generation, of filmmakers from around the world when the 15th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival screens at The Admiral Theater in West Seattle on Sun Sept. 30, at 4:00pm.
Out of 520 entries received from 49 countries around the world, MANHATTAN SHORT selected 10 short films as finalists. Each film is 18 minutes or under in length. Countries represented this year include Norway, The Netherlands, Russia, England, Ireland, Peru, France, Romania, Spain and the USA in what festival organizers describe as the "United Nations of Film Festivals."
These short films will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Film goers will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film they feel should win. Votes are tallied at each participating cinema and submitted to festival headquarters where the winner will be announced in New York City as well as posted on the net at http://www.manhattanshort.com on Sunday, October 7th at 10:00pm.
