Program Description

Join us at Celebration Cinema for the 2023 showing of MANHATTAN SHORTThis showing is FREE to the public, but you must register to reserve a spot. Seating is "first come, first served" upon arrival. If registration doesn't fill, walk-ins will be welcome. Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the show; please stop by the Chippewa River District Library table in the Celebration Cinema lobby to receive instructions. The total film run time is approximately 2-1/2 hours; however, there will be a 10-minute intermission. 

An optional concession special is available to all attendees, which includes a medium soda and an 85 oz. box of popcorn for $6.50 + tax. Mention the group rate at the concessions counter.

Manhattan Short is not a two-day event. Both showings offered will have the same content. Suggested minimum age of 14+

MANHATTAN SHORT is the only film festival of its kind. The Final selections screen simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, where attendees vote for Best Film and Best Actor awards at each participating venue. Every short film selected will automatically become qualified for the Oscars of 2024. Upon entry at all participating venues, festival attendees are handed a Voting Card and an Official Program and asked to vote for the ONE Film and Actor they feel should win. Each host venue tallies votes and then emails them to our NYC headquarters. The MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival winners will be announced on the home page at and in the winners link on Monday, October 3, 2022.
