Manhattan Short Film FestivalThe Whaling Museum and Bristol Community College have partnered to bring the Manhattan Short Film Festival to New Bedford again. Join more than 100,000 film lovers across 240 cities and six continents to screen and vote on the Finalists’ Films.

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.

You Be the Judge!
Audiences at each venue will be handed a voting card upon entry to each cinema and asked to vote for the ONE film they think should win. Votes are tallied by each cinema and sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ. The overall winner is announced on Monday October 9th, 2017.
