MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival 2020 Redeux

MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival 2020 Redeux

Showtimes

ONE WORLD * ONE WEEK * ONE FESTIVAL

Because we couldn't hold the festival last fall (one of my favorite festivals in the whole world!!!), we get to share these amazing short films with you now.

What is MANHATTAN SHORT?

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. If the Film Festival experience truly is about getting great works in front of as many eyes as possible, MANHATTAN SHORT offers the ultimate platform -- one that sees its films screened in Sydney, Mumbai, Moscow, Kathmandu, Vienna, Cape Town to cinemas in all fifty states of the United States and beyond --


"In times like these, cross-border events like MANHATTAN SHORT that contribute towards greater tolerance and understanding are needed now more than ever. This is a festival that's about communities bonding together via their local cinema. I want to thank and congratulate all the filmmakers and cinemas involved in the global cinematic event. MANHATTAN SHORT is not going to cable TV or Video on Demand or anywhere else. So get down to your local theater to see 9 of the best short films the world has to offer," said Founding Director Nicholas Mason.
