It's that time again: MANHATTAN SHORT returns to the Strand in Vicksburg. This is one of our most popular programs. Martin's at Midtown will be hosting the ballot counting party after the show again. Do not miss this...
MANHATTAN SHORT today announced the Final Nine selections for its 21st Annual Short Film Festival, a worldwide event taking place in over 350 venues across six continents between September 27th and October 7, 2018. MANHATTAN SHORT is the only event of its kind. The Final Nine are screened simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audiences in each participating venue. By virtue of their selection by MANHATTAN SHORT, each short film is automatically Oscar-qualified.
The Nine MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from eight countries with films from Austria, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Kosovo, New Zealand, USA, and two films from the United Kingdom. These Final Nine short films represent the best short films among 1565 submissions from 73 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2018, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films. This year's Final Nine represent an extraordinary range of film genres that includes intimate dramas; fast-paced animation; spine-tingling tales; a World War II epic; a film shot entirely underwater and a comedy as part of the MANHATTAN SHORT program
