Join Us for the 2022 Manhattan Short Film Festival!

From September 22nd to October 2nd, 2022, over 100,000 film lovers in over 500 cities across six continents will gather in cinemas, museums, universities and, of course, libraries, to view and vote on the finalists’ films in the 25th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival! This festival does not travel, but is instead experienced simultaneously around the world. After each screening, you will be able to vote for your favorite film and actor. The tallies will then be sent to the festival headquarters in New York City, and the best film and actor will be announced after the final count. Click here to take a closer look at this year’s short film finalists!
