Audiences in over 300 cities spanning six continents unite for one reason: to judge the Finalists in the 22nd Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival!

The finalists hail from countries across the globe and will represent the best short films in the world – testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short film festivals.

Best Film and Best Actor awards will be determined by ballots cast by the audiences. By virtue of their selection by Manhattan Short, each short film is automatically Oscar-qualified.

Two of the 2018 Manhattan Short Film Festival finalists have been nominated for the 2019 Oscars - Chuchotage and Fauve.

This film festival is a true ‘one of a kind’.

Which of the short films will be ‘the best’? That’s up to the worldwide audience to decide – including you! – voting forms at the event.
