Global film festival visits Dublin Catch the Manhattan Short Festival this weekend

Watch and vote for your favourite short film at the Manhattan Short Film Festival

The World’s First Global Film Festival visits Dublin this weekend. Stopping off in North & South America, Asia, Australia and Africa the 12th Annual Manhattan Short Festival visits The Sugar Club on Sunday October 3rd from 8pm.

The films from ten finalists will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Audiences at each venue have been asked to vote for the one film that they think is best, with all votes being sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ after the Dublin screenings.

Talking about the awards director Nicholas Mason said “We started with one screen on the side of a truck on a downtown Manhattan Street twelve years ago. Seeing this festival now taking place in over two hundred cities across six continents in one week is astounding. This year there are ten shorts from ten separate countries and they will unite an audience of over one hundred thousand people across six continents in one week. Short films not only entertain but give a wonderful insight into cultures, trends and the goings on inside the world. I can think of no better way to utilize the power and craft of a short film than MANHATTAN SHORT”.
