26th Annual Manhattan Short
Film Festival (2023)


The world’s first global film festival in which over 100,000 film lovers in over 500 cities across six continents gather to view and vote on the Finalists’ Films in the 26th Annual MSFF.
MANHATTAN SHORT is not a touring Festival; rather, it is an instantaneous celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great short films to venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites from around ten. 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, Vienna, Cape Town to cinemas in all fifty states of the United States and beyond.

Upon entry at all participating venues, festival attendees are handed a Voting Card and an Official Program and asked to vote for the ONE Film and Actor they feel should win. Votes are tallied by each host venue then emailed to our NYC headquarters where winning votes are tallied.
