    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 films to great venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites. (this ok for program description?)

During September 26–October 6, 2019, more than 100,000 film lovers will gather in over 300 screening venues across six continents for just one reason—to view 10 outstanding short films chosen as finalists in the 21st annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. Last year—more than 40 libraries from across the USA joined the event with great success, producing an enthusiastic response from the participating libraries and their filmgoers. This success showed us that libraries are not just about books, they are about community and building community. And that is exactly what The Manhattan Short Film Festival is all about too—bringing communities together across the globe to enjoy a handpicked selection of the world’s best short films.
