MANHATTAN SHORT has announced the Final Ten selections for its 24th Annual Short Film Festival, a worldwide event taking place in over 400 venues across six continents between September 23 and October 3, 2021. MANHATTAN SHORT is the only event of its kind. The Final Ten screen 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 Final Ten MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from eight countries with films from U.K, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, Norway, Italy, and Canada, alongside two films each from France and the USA. These Final Ten Films represent the best short films from among 970 submissions from 70 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2021, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films worldwide.
Pearson Lakes Art Center is one of the screening locations! We will be showing the 10 finalists films for the Manhattan Shorts in our theatre on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 6:00 pm!
