The Cape May County Library is one of the official viewing locations for this year’s MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. Join us for a viewing of ten short films from talented up-and-coming independent filmmakers. Following the show, you will have the chance to cast your vote and help decide which short should win the Gold Medal for 2017.
100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities around the globe gather in cinemas, museums, and universities for one purpose -- to view and vote on the Finalist's Films in the 20th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. MANHATTAN SHORT is not a touring festival; rather, it is a celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great films to great venues, and allowing the audiences to select their favorites.
Filmgoers in Cape May County can unite with over 100,000 film-lovers around the world during the week of Sept 28 - Oct 8 when the 20th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival screens at the Cape May County libraries between October 2nd and October 7th.
The 10 MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from nine countries with films from Syria, Latvia and Georgia representing their respective countries for the first time in this event. Two short films hail from Spain, the only country with multiple Final 10 selections. These Final 10 short films represent the best short films among a record 1615 submissions from 75 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2017, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films. This year's Final 10 represent an extraordinary range of film genres with comedy, drama, horror, sci-fi, animation and martial arts short films all part of the MANHATTAN SHORT program.
