Once again, film lovers in Sydney can unite with an audience of over 100,000 people across 500 cities and six continents as the Manhattan Short Film Festival returns to Glen Street Theatre.

Manhattan Short is more than just one of the largest short film festivals in the world today, it is the world’s first and only global film festival.  

Ten short films selected from over a thousand entries around the world will screen in venues across six continents during one week. Audiences at each venue are handed a voting card and asked to vote for the one film they think is best. Votes are sent through to Manhattan Short HQ and the winner is announced the following day.

With finalists from previous years going on to be nominated and even win the Oscar in the short film category, Manhattan Short is a wonderful opportunity to see the next generation of feature filmmakers from around the world.

Manhattan Short is a popular annual fixture at Glen Street Theatre so early booking is recommended.
