This year, MANHATTAN SHORT received 1565 entries from 73 countries from which nine finalists were selected. These nine short films will screen more than 1000 times in over 350 cities on six continents during the week of Sept 27 – Oct 7. And the judges of these films are you, the audience. On entry to each venue, 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 8 at 10am EST. The directors and actors anxiously await your decision.
