The MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival is an extraordinary global event that will take place during the week of September 26th to October 3rd 2010 inviting over 100,000 people in over 200 cities across six continents to gather in Cinemas, Galleries, Museums, and Cafes for one purpose, to view and vote on the Finalists’ short films. The New Media Film Festival is proud to be the Los Angeles sponsor of this event in conjunction with Kess Pro Studios and Showbiz Store and Café. Our partnering cinemas are situated in Asia, Australia, Europe, South America, and North America, including venues in all 50 States of the United States and Africa. The most intriguing part of this festival is the selection of the winners. The audiences at each venue will receive a voting card and asked to vote for the ONE film that they think should win. The cards are collected by each festival venue and submitted to the MANHATTAN SHORT HQ where the winner will be announced on Sunday October 3rd in NYC.
“We’re excited to be part of this exciting global event and give the audience a voice in selection of the winner.” Said Susan Johnston, founder of New Media Film Festival and Los Angeles event sponsor.
