MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival

Glen Street Theatre presents The 18th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival in Sydney.

Every year the festival unites over 100,000 people in more than 300 cities, gathering in their respective cinemas to celebrate ten of the greatest short films of the year from all around the world.

Not only do the attendees get to view these critically acclaimed short films, they also vote for the Best Film and Best Actor, with votes from all across the globe being counted and winners being announced on Monday October 5.

With entries from Germany, USA, France, Turkey and many more, this years finalists range from bleak comedies and social commentaries to abstract art simulations and animated tales. From a film following the friendship of two boys during the Kosovo war, to one about two young sisters hearing moans from behind their parents’ door at night; this film festival really does have it all.

“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 audience’s attention,” said Founding Director Nicholas Mason.
