Film lovers in Danbury will unite with an audience of over 100,000 film buffs, across 6 continents, when the Manhattan Short Film Festival returns to The Palace Danbury on Friday, September 28 at 8 pm.
Manhattan Short is not a touring Festival; it’s a celebration that occurs simultaneously across the globe, bringing great films to great venues and allowing the audiences to select their favorites. Nine short films selected from entries from around the globe will screen across the world for one week. Audiences vote for the one film they think is best.
This year’s finalists bring together an extraordinary range of film genres including intimate dramas; fast-paced animation; spine-tingling tales; a World War 11 epic; a film shot entirely underwater and a dark comedy as part of the Manhattan Short 2018 program.
The Final 9 are: Baghead (United Kingdom), Fire in Cardboard City (New Zealand), Home Shopper (USA), Her (Kosovo) Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times (United Kingdom), Someone (Germany), Chuchotage (Hungary), Fauve (Canada), and Lacrimosa (Austria).
