THE MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL

September 25 & 26 @ 7:00PM

Stonington Ball Field

 

 

The 23rd Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival, a worldwide event taking place across six continents between September 24 and October 31, 2020, is the only event of its kind. The Final Nine screen simultaneously across the world during a one-month period, with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audiences in each participating venue.

This year's Final Nine selections use drama, comedy and animation to address an astonishing number of themes, ranging from identity to parenthood to the seemingly universal frustration caused by the Department of Motor Vehicles no matter the country. The directorial voices are both male and female from countries large and small, often inspired by personal and sometimes harrowing, experience. This year's Final Nine screening also is a rare instance when gripping dramas from Iran, Israel, and the State of Palestine are featured in the same program.

$20 / CAR
