Filmgoers in McLaren Vale & surrounds can unite will over 100,000 filmlovers worldwide when the 16th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival takes place at THE BLACK COCKATOO ARTHOUSE on SATURDAY 5th OCTOBER @ 7.30pm. This year, MANHATTAN SHORT received a record breaking 628 short film entries from 48 countries, with films from Finland, UK, Australia, France, Ireland and the USA, making up the ten finlalists. These films will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Audiences at each cinema will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film they think should win. Votes will be sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ with the winner announced at ManhattanShort.com on Sunday Oct 6 at 10pm (EST)

In my 16 years of programming MANHATTAN SHORT this is by far the strongest show we have ever had. From the first scene to the last, these films will command every second of the audiences attention. It's anyone's guess who will win the Gold Medal. This event is never going to cable, DVD or any form of digital download, if you don't get along to your venue then you missedsaid Founding Director Nicholas Mason.

MANHATTAN SHORT EST in 1998, when Mason screened 16 short films onto a screen mounted to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street, Little Italy NYC. A year later the Festival moved to Union Square Park NYC, and it was events after 9/11, that transformed this event into a worldwide phenomenon, becoming the only film festival on the planet that unfolds, simultaneously, in more than 250 cinemas on six continents, bringing over 100,000 film-lovers in all corners of the globe together for one week, via the next generation of filmmakers.
