This year, Manhattan Short received 1615 entries from 75 countries from which 10 finalists were selected. These 10 short films will screen more than 1000 times in over 250 cities on six continents during the week of September 28 – October 8. And the judges of these films are you, the audience. On entry to the theater, you will be handed a ballot card that allows you to vote for the best short film and actor at the conclusion of the program. Votes will be sent to Manhattan Short’s headquarters and the winner will be announced at manhattanshort.com on Monday, October 9 at 10:00 am. The directors and actors eagerly await your decision.
