Manhattan Shorts Fest Arrives In Ireland
18 Sep 2007 :
The 10th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival reaches Irish shores this September 30th, when Galway and Cork cinemagoers will join 97 other cities across the globe to view and judge the next generation of filmmakers.

The festival’s dozen finals shorts, selected from 456 entries received from 33 countries, will screen at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway, on Sunday, September 30th at 3 pm and the Cork Film Centre, Cork City on Sunday, September 30th at 8 pm

Filmgoers will be handed a voting card upon entry and asked to vote for the one film that they feel should win. Votes are tallied at each cinema and forwarded to the festival’s headquarters where the winner will be announced at Union Square Park (NYC) on Sunday, September 30th at 9:15 pm. and posted on www.MSfilmfest.com by 10 pm.

The eclectic mix of films, all no longer than 12 minutes duration, represent entries from countries including USA, Australia, Canada, UK, Kenya, Israel, Spain, Singapore and Germany in what festival organizers describe as a “cinematic Olympiad.” Past finalists of the festival have gone on to be nominated and even win the Oscar in the short film category.

In one week, over 50,000 people from as far apart as St. Petersburg, Russia and Buenos Aires, Argentina will view and vote on these 12 films.

“While the goal of any festival is to discover and promote future talent, the ultimate aim of this festival is to bring communities together via twelve stories from around the world,” says Nicholas Mason, Manhattan Short founder and director.

The Manhattan Short website’s blog will go live during the festival week, 23rd September -30th September and can be found at www.MSfilmfest.com.

Tickets for the festival are €7.
