MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival

Friday, October 5 through Sunday, October 7
Northwest School of the Arts

From modest beginnings 21 years ago, the MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival has become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 100,000 people attending screenings at more than 250 venues across six continents. For the first time in Fall 2018, Charlotte will be part of what has been called the “world’s first and only global film festival.”

Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased online http://inspirenorthwest.org (buy early for assigned choice seating)

And it will be happening in grand style as Northwest School of the Arts Foundation hosts the event from Oct. 5 to Oct. 7 at the new $9 million theatre on the campus of Northwest School of the Arts, 1415 Beatties Ford Rd. The festival opening gala at 6:30 p.m. October 5 will include a silent auction, and live entertainment by internationally recognized students of Northwest School of the Arts followed by the showing of the festival’s 10 films from nine countries.

Audiences in Charlotte get to vote on the festival’s best film and best actor, with the results announced at ManhattanShort.com at 10 a.m. Oct. 9.

The festival began 20 years with just over 300 people gathered in the Little Italy neighborhood of New York City to view some short films projected onto a screen mounted to the side of a truck. There was evidently good word of mouth. The 2017 Manhattan Short Film Festival received 1,615 entries from 75 countries. The 10 finalists that were shown in the festival’s program were from the USA, Georgia, Italy, Latvia, New Zealand, Spain (two), Switzerland, Syria and the United Kingdom, and were all Oscar-eligible. http://www.manhattanshort.com
