You Be the Judge! Will MANHATTAN SHORT audiences select any Oscar winners this year? Come join us to watch the ten captivating short films eligible for an Academy Award nomination as filmgoers in Philadelphia unite with over 100,000 film-lovers around the world when the 22nd Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival screens at The Madlab Post studio at BOK on Thursday, September 26 – Sunday, October 6, 2019. Every audience member will be given a ballot to vote for the best short films and actor at the conclusion of each showing. The directors and actors eagerly await your decision.

MANHATTAN SHORT continues to be a premier showcase for female directors with five of the Final Ten films directed by women. This year’s Final Ten represent an extraordinary range of film genres that includes intimate dramas, spine-tingling suspense, and hilarious comedies, as well as genre surprises like a pair of science fiction films and one that focuses on tennis.

Based in East Passyunk, The Madlab Post loves nothing more than seeing a film our Philadelphia audience voted for during MANHATTAN SHORT at the Academy Awards. Once a nominee is announced, The Madlab Post and loyal audiences around the globe champion those films and filmmakers through social media all the way to the podium!
