At the Liberty:25th Annual Short Film Festival
September 22, 2022
DAYTON—You be the Judge! The Manhattan Short Film Festival is the only event of its kind! This is the 25th annual Manhattan Short Film Festival, which is a worldwide event taking place in about 500 venues across six continents. Each of the selected 10 finalist short films will be shown during each screening within a 12 day period (between Sept. 22 and October 2, 2022 across the world), with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by each audience member (You!) in each participating venue. By virtue of their selection by MANHATTAN SHORT, each of the ten short films is automatically Oscar-qualified.
A summary from another venue provides this useful information. “The Final Ten Manhattan Short films come from eight countries with films from Scotland, Czech & Slovakia, Spain, Australia, Finland and Lebanon, alongside two films each from France and USA. These Final Ten Films represent the best short films from among 870 submissions from 70 countries received by Manhattan Short for 2022.”
The Manhattan Short Film Festival is for film lovers who want to experience unique and riveting stories from all around the world - and the Liberty Theater in Dayton is the only theater in over a 100-mile radius offering this film festival (with the next closest a one night showing in Spokane). Don’t miss this event.
