The Manhattan Short Film Festival Returns To The Astor
After a tumultuous year of fear about an imminent shutdown and being saved from such an abhorrent demise by millionaire cinema-lover Ralph Taranto, The Astor Theatre is returning to the limelight with The Manhattan Short Film Festival.
Running from 7.30pm on Wednesday October 3, cinema-lovers are encouraged to attend the night to judge, and vote for, 10 finalist films for the international festival. Featuring entries from Norway, Romania, Spain and the USA to name a few, The Manhattan Short Film Festival is an annual event that runs over 250 countries.
It is a cultural integration of film and nations in an effort to declare the best short film of the year that will be announced in New York City on Sunday October 7 at 10pm. This year featured 520 entries from 49 different countries which were filtered to the top 10 that will play at The Astor Theatre this October.
