Manhattan Short Film Festival

Saturday, October 7 from 7:00 – 9:30 pm at Burr and Burton Academy’s Riley Center for the Arts


For one week this fall over 100,000 film lovers will gather in over 500 cities across six continents for one reason…to view and vote on the ten short films (18 minutes and under) in the 26th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival.

MANHATTAN SHORT is not a touring festival; rather, it is an instantaneous celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great film and great artists to great venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites. All films selected in MANHATTAN SHORT 2023 will be eligible to enter the Oscars in 2024.

YOU BE THE JUDGE! Audiences from around the world are given the opportunity to unite not only to view the films, but to vote for the ONE film they think is best. Votes are tallied at each venue and sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT headquarters in NYC where the winner will be announced on Monday, October 9, 2023. MANHATTAN SHORT is, quite simply, a collection of some of the best short films currently screening in the world today.

Tickets are $12 per person.
