The MANHATTAN SHORT film festival is screening on Tuesday, September 29th at 7pm at MOTORCO in Durham. Filmgoers in North Carolina will unite with over 100,000 film-lovers around the world during the week of Sept 25-Oct 4. Get your tickets now.

This year MANHATTAN SHORT received a record breaking 678 short film entries from 52 countries. The 10 Finalists hail from eight countries, with short films from Turkey and Kosovo representing their respective countries for the first time.

Cinemagoers will become instant film critics as they are handed a ballot upon entry that allows them to vote for the Best Film and Best Actor.

MANHATTAN SHORT is the ultimate audience award that salutes the creative talents of both directors behind the camera and actors in front of it. Votes will be sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ with the winner announced at on Monday, October 5, at 10:00 AM (EST).

This year's MANHATTAN SHORT highlights the continued importance of woman in film. Half of this year's selections feature actresses ranging in age from children to senior citizens. Audiences from last year's MANHATTAN SHORT also will be pleased to see rising star Marleen Lohse once again in Forever Over making her the first actor, male or female to appear in consecutive years in MANHATTAN SHORT. Two other short films (Bear Story and Patch) are sophisticated animations, as MANHATTAN SHORT continues to support this important art form. And, as always, MANHATTAN SHORT offers short films set in a wide range of locales, from the beaches in Turkey to the mountains of the Balkans to the streets of Berlin and the backroads of America's West Coast.

One World - One Week - One Festival
